Sherlock and foreign language indexing System
I was just mucking around and I saw that in Sherlock there is a "Languages..." button on the Preferences screen. Mine had many ones checked like French, Danish, German, etc. that I do not need. The text there says indexing will be faster and use less space if you uncheck the ones you don't need. I didn't do any tests but it did finish as I was writing this note!

This definitely speeds up indexing, but it also makes the indexing use much less resources. In fact now if I do search in Sherlock while it is indexing, it has no significant impact (or at least not nearly as much of an impact) on the speed of the search. Previously indexing would make concurrent searches take much longer. I.e. Sherlock indexing is actually now useful and unobtrusive! Amazing!
