Thanks for doing this, mouser. I've learned a lot, not least that I'm miles away from using FARR to it's full power :-[ But this is certainly much appreciated.

Btw, about the last screencast with the Search Behavior Options tab, some of these options have moved to a different tab, called Folder Browsing, in case anyone was wondering ;)

Hmmmmm, my typos are usually way sneakier than that!!  They usually end up being a word in the dictionary.  The spelling checker doesn't flag 'em.  After I post I read it over and find "I never had a problem with that." is all of a sudden "I never had a problem width that."  Worse than the magic sock in the dryer!! ;)

At least you check your spelling, rather than examining magical incantations.  :)

The way I figure it, if an incantation ain't magical, then what the spell good is it?  :D

edit: (couldn't resist lame pun - or is that a redundancy?)  :)
