Please tell us about your data organization scheme, such that you can find
anything you have -- email, PDFs, Postscript, music, text files, HTML files,
et c. -- in the same amount of time a Google, Google Desktop, Spotlight, or
Windows Search query takes. If you have never used any of those systems,
I'll tell you: the amount of time is about 1/10th of a second.
