Feeling stupid... actually anxious

Just now, I opened my feed reader (Google Reader) which I haven't done for the longest time...

One of the first messages on the home page was one from the Google Reader blog - "We Found It"
The message talks about the new Search feature in Google Reader - long awaited by me...

The post shows a screenshot with a search box - I was anxious to try it out AND the new fix they also announced in the same post (ability to minimize the side-pane). Being the fact that I was using Google Reader at the same instant to read the post - I raised my eyes looking for the search box - nothing.
Tried to click the separator to minimize the side-pane - nothing...

Tried to refresh the whole browser window, nothing, tried browsing to different views in reader - nothing.

Last change - going to settings, looked for a setting to turn this on perhaps - nada!

Deep down I know this is one of the slow release things google does from time to time (usualy Israel is one of the last) but they tend to anounce that sort of thing...

Well I'll be waiting for it to apear later on...

See ya!

Quick Update: it came on 5 minutes later, guess the anouncment was just a little premature... Yay! Also the feature is working quite nicely - I love the ability to hide the side-pane - now I can read the sunday Dilbert comic in ease without guessing what is at the right side end of the strip :-)
