[meta] Multiple search terms

Is it possible to search on multiple terms in such a way that only results matching all terms are returned? Also is there a way of searching on a phrase rather than words? For example - earlier today I was looking for recommendations for books on SSRS, so I put "SSRS Book" into the search box, and was presented with a set of answers that contained either SSRS or Book. I tried the usual google-esque tricks of putting "SSRS +Book", "SSRS AND Book", and got the same 299 questions / 242 answers. Individual searches for "SSRS" and "Book" yield 153Q/71A and 151Q/174A respectively.

I've noticed that the search isn't quite what we had become used to before the change. Have raised it on meta.osqa, and will post any answers back here.

Kev - Thanks! I won't hold my breath, though - it's not that important at the moment, just an irritation.
