Default Re: Start Menu Search

Indexing files is such a memory hog. I don't know why microsoft can't just make a file system whose MFT can be parsed on the fly. They have full control over the OS, it isn't as if they'll run into ISV problems.

If google can pull out 10 results of internet searches from magnetic storage (as opposed to volatile memory like the indexing service does) almost instantly, why can't your local operating system?

AFAIK, that's not possible. I disable the recently opened programs and then pin the few I frequently use to the start menu. I don't think there is anyway to get rid of that section completely. I rarely use the "All Programs" flyout anyways, since the search works so well. Just hit start button, and start typing the program you want. Way faster than navigating the menus.

For me, that someone else might "fubar" something is not an issue, because I'm the sole operator of this system.
I was just pointing out that I said to index the files before

If God were to intervene, it would need to be on behalf of my computer, more than for anyone else. However, God doesn't always protect us from ourselves. I have experienced times that God did handle a problem with an inanimate object for my sake, but that is not an everyday event.

Despite the perception otherwise, it is we that owe God many things.

God owes me 35 cents due to a Pepsi machine eating my change on two different occasions.

God didn't make the Pepsi machine, nor did he put the 35 cents into it, but either those times were in the distant past, or you have a well priced machine. The machine in the complex where I live is 6o cents, and that is low on the average.

I'm just going to play devil's advocate here, but lets just say I did actually mean that the pepsi was only 35 cents. About how long ago would that have been?

swiff!

So you don't deny that God owes him 35 cents, you just question whether or not the machine exists and if this was a recent event?

I see...

My memory isn't that good, so I can't put a date to it, but it seems that I remember some soda machines that cheap recently in some stores, like WalMart or Home Depot, but they definitely weren't Pepsi machines.
