You could search for <space>U2 or U2<space> :D

You can even search for 3 spaces in a row for example, not a nice thing to have in your result-filter :(

i always put the dot (U2.) behind because it's always .rar or .par so you still have 3 characters

Hmm, there's really no need to have a 3 char minimum limit. I'll remove it for the next release, so it'll be possible to search for "u2".
bug fixed. no idea how. hate it when that happens. trying to break it again now. will. not. be. defeated.

And why not .u2 or u2., and so on. Now we have 7 searches already. Multiply that with 2 for the general and audio categories. Obviously removing the limit is better.
