10.6: Add Size and other columns to search results

For about 2 years (longer?) I've been cussing at 10.5 and 10.6 for R E M O V I N G the option to see File Size in a Finder Search since about OS 8 or 7

What in the World was Apple thinking ? ... Damn, that's the Windoze way of doing things

Can only imagine there's some "new wierdness" going on "under the hood" with The Finder/Spotlight/et al ... and that is reason Size was removed (?) until the "New and Improved Finder" is ready for primetime (my guess is some kind of super duper relational database stuff, and is tough to implement easily, especially with Cover Flow and all the other newer "bells and whistles")

Anyway - Thanks Again for this "hint"

Now - if we can have a way to "easily" search a unique combination of particular drives, and ONLY that combination, easliy ... dig ? (like in 10.4 - pick the drives to search - 1, 2, etc, or all)
