This project is over 85 logs, so it's definitely time.  Even a search engine for all the projects of a single user would be an improvement.  Of course, a simple feature like searching now requires getting bought out by google, inventing a new programming language & it has to be based on neural networks instead of strstr.

Alphabet corporation has a custom search engine service:

This one searches all mclionhead projects. It doesn't work at all:

This one searches the logs in this project. It sort of gets close, but still is a piece of $4 trillion trash:

It might end up being a page on a local server which loads every single log page to search for the text, just as a lion would do.
