Search all files in XP, regardless of extension


Finally, the answer this this major annoyance I've had with the built-in find on Windows.

What is odd though is that all the competing desktop search products (such as Google's and Yahoo's) also suffer from this same annoyance.

The only hard part of this article, was figuring out where the download link's here

lhaven: The Reconstruction Continues

After recovering the /boot and /(root) filesytems on lhaven, I discovered that the data filesystem on the same disk was also damaged. The difference being it could at least recognize it as a filesystem, so I let fsck to do its damage.

Lots of stuff got disconnected, etc. But, they all look like old and files that I could tolerate losing....

Namely it affected the old /home location (which is now on a different disk, but I had kept the old location as a backup) and what are supposed to be the backup of my iTunes music folder. There was pretty much only one area that I didn't want to lose, and it seems okay.....1 of 3 DVArchive volumes on this system.

The /boot and /(root) filesystems were damaged.

Darn the power went out....

....and looks like another Cyberpower UPS has failed me. The one handling my home network equipment dropped instantly.

Meanwhile sounds like the race is on to see which UPS will tank next....the main one being the UPS that the ReplayTV recording The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Darn...looks like it didn't make it :..(

Strangely, it is the SmartUPS that sounds like it'll be annoying me for the longest....I used to dislike APC, but looks like Cyberpower is moving to my bad list.

Now to wait for the power to return, so I can go to bed....and do all the things I need to do before I can :yawn:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
