Strigi + pet peeve
It's called strigi, without the N, but since it should be stringed up ...
What pisses me off most about all of those annoying desktop search tools (unless someone can point em to one that's different :) ) is that they are always indexing, and eating CPU cycles, even though they are only supposed to do this when Im idle.
Having them continously index a 2T disk, even if they dont do anything, they still eat up a lot of memory.
My ideal desktop search engine would:
1) combine the search functionality found in Picture and Music programs (think amarok, digikam)
2) recognises tags
3) should be able to be told, go out at 23:55 and start indexing
4) and be done indexing all my data well before 7:00 am in the morning
5) be able to be smart enough to understand things like ``search in all my pictures'' or search al my word docs
until the, Ill stick to mairix to earch my email once a night, digikam to search my pictures, and amarok to collect my music
