Find by Content

Grrrr. Many nice folks are writing in to tell me that all I need to do is hit Command “F” and then type in the words etc. I know how to do that folks. My problem is that when I use the find-function on my computer(s) it doesn’t work when searching for content. Searching for names of files works just fine. But when I try to search for documents containing the word foombalakachoomba — for example — it just doesn’t work. Either it searches and searches forever and comes up with nothing or it just comes up with nothing really fast. Also, most of the time when I try to “index” my hard drive it never completes the task. Meanwhile, back in OS9 this function — in “sherlock” — worked pretty well. I’m sorry to waste everyones time with this sort of thing but, hey, I’m selfish.

Those institutions wear their progressive bona fides on their sleeves and proclaim it for all the world to hear. In their offhand rhetoric — ... Read More
