Ok call me cruel but even with it’s big brown eyes looking at me I hate it, I hate it sooo much…
Sorry for being negative, but you must know the scenario; I know I have a document somewhere can’t remember the name but it mentioned “Thomas Jones” or “Project proteus” or “something that I wouldn’t normally put into a document” and I need to find it. Time is running out the pressure is on.
But I’m using MS Windows so everything is fine this is a professional operating system that has been perfected over the last 23 years right?
Then I see the dreaded dog winking at me:
The other day was even worse, I totally forgot of the windows search’s dislike of source code! (How could I have forgotten that? Stupid Dave! Stupid!) After a tense 30 minutes nothing relevant was found. “I hate that Dog!” I gasped. Luckily for me Andrew Lister (of http://slicedorange.co.uk fame) was in the office. “Have you used Wingrep?” he calmly chipped in. “No” I answered. “It’s good” he added. Joy of joys Wingrep is good! Tiny install finds everything, is quite fast (considering it does no indexing unlike the horrible google desktop search and the Microsoft one they really slow your system down indexing everything) it’s my search of choice from now on – highly recommended. Nice one Andrew.
