10.4: Use Spotlight as a quick and dirty database
Authored by: meikokun on Oct 18, '05 09:42:47AM

I beg to differ, but spotlight DOES index network volumes. Took me forever to stop the bloody thing from indexing a shared drive - it was annoying when connected on the lan, infuriating when connecting via the net. Had to resort to a shareware app in the end to stop the indexing, as dragging the networked volume to the spotlight ignore tab in preferences would only stop it for that mount period - the next time it mounted, off it would go again, indexing away.
Dunno what was up with my settings, but it wasn't just on my comp I had this 'feature' (some here evidently see it as a bonus..)
