Efficient Method to Find Records at Interval Timestamps
TLDR Dan asked for an efficient method for counting frequency of record intervals. Jason suggested using multi_search or creating a new field for each record.

filter_by: timestamp:>=123 && timestamp:<=345
timestamp_intervaland set a common value for all records between x > y, and another common value for all records between y > z, and then facet by that field.
The actual release date is a unix timestamp, but I created a new field called "Release Date" and extracted just the year into a new string field and I facet by that field for display / filtering purposes, but use the timestamp field for sorting

Handling Multiple Dates Search with Unix Timestamp in Int64
Akashchellakumar asked how to search multiple dates with Unix timestamp in int64. Kishore Nallan suggested inter-field filtering and storing timestamps as array of int64 or strings. Akashchellakumar thanked and agreed to try this method.
Discussing Typesense Search Request Performance
Al experienced longer-than-reported times for Typesense search requests, sparking a detailed examination of json parsing, response times and data transfer. Jason and Kishore Nallan helped solve the issue.
Fuzzy Search Restrictions and num_typos Extension Request
Ashwin seeks to limit the fields covered by fuzzy search and wants specification of typo tolerance per field. Kishore Nallan suggests num_typos syntax to control the behavior, with Ashwin agreeing and planning to raise a related issue on Github. Jason advises on comparing integer time stamps for InstantSearch usage.
