    So I am searching for a file...

    I decide to open up windows little search thingy, and lowe and behold i have this retarded little puppy looking at me. Now to be honest this is the FIRST time i have actually lost a file on my computer and had to use a search to find it, So I haven't had the pleasure of dealing with this step by step search feature that Win XP has. Well i know the files a PSD file so I figure *.psd should be good enough and click the search, seconds later system resources are maxing out at 100% My computer sounds like theres a damn woodpecker going to town on the hard drive, and yay! NO RESULTS. A simple CTRL+ALT+DEL and end the search process, proceed to the START > RUN > CMD

    Get to the C:\ and put in
    dir *.psd /w /s |more <enter>

    15 seconds go by, no grinding no system slowing down, and boom! I found what I was looking for.

    I am still amazed to this day at how DOS is still that much more powerfull and efficient than this "long" developed operating system..

    Been using XP since almost day one and have always found everything I've been looking for through file search. I carry on while search quietly works minimized.

    Being someone who predates Windows and worked in DOS for many years, that last line gave me a good chuckle. I appreciated that.
