Google Desktop: the good news - bad news story
The Coding Humanist
post on the Google desktop search download
got me all excited. I've been waiting, with breath almost bated, for a good, user-friendly, hard disk search to replace MS Windows search function - which is as intuitive and friendly as CPM used to be!
It's there to download, and not a big file! It indexes when your machine is idle
, rather than in the background - slowing all ones work. (Oh, that MS would learn that lesson!) BUT
it doesn't index emails - unless you are a good little microserf. Gnash, gnash listen to my Mozilla-using teeth grind away in dumb fury. No, actually don't, follow the link chain to here
and register a request that your email client gets the Google treatment!
