Sure, I just went to "Advanced Search", put in "steady rest" in the Keyword box & Evan in the User Name box.

I remembered that the thread name had steady rest in it instead of follower rest. Dunno why, it just stuck for some reason. It would've found follower rest too but would've taken a couple sec. longer maybe?
