Well, in honor of Alex's "honorable discharge" from the service of Asynchrony, I'd like to propose a slightly altered version of the phonetic alphabet (okay, really altered) that, if Alex were put in charge, our nation's military might actually be using. For those of you who know the man, and I suppose for those of you who don't, that would be an entertaining, if not altogether frightening, prospect. Congrats, Alex, on your new job. We'll miss you -- and your unique lexicon!

"It's good enough. It gets the job done. And it puts Microsoft at the table to play with everybody else."
I don't know about ya'll, but that doesn't sound very compelling.

GDSPlus is a free add-on that allows you to specify what extensions the new Desktop Search tool from Google will index. This includes the ability to add new extensions not yet supported by Google. You will be able to search the contents of any file that can be indexed as text. Examples include:
.xml, .sql, .bat
.log (mIRC and Trillian)
.cs, .vb (Visual Studio .NET source code files)
.frm, .bas, .cls (Visual Basic 6 source code files)
.wpd (WordPerfect), .rtf (Rich Text File)
Additionally, adding non-ASCII file extensions such as .wav, .rar, .png, .psd etc. will index just the filenames for search (PDF content is still not searchable, however). You can also remove support for any of the extensions that Google included and you do not want indexed.
