Searching in Mac OS X Tiger

Like almost everyone else, I’ve installed Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, and it’s a really very good upgrade to the operating system. The system-wide search will be really handy. It’s indexed all of my documents (which includes a 2.3GB library of PDF files of other people’s papers), so being able to find the 29 papers that mention hypersequents (together with the 18 emails in my mail client) is just something special.

I’m having even more fun, however, with organising my files using tagging. I’ll talk about that one later.


I’m Greg Restall, and this is my personal website. I am the Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews, and the Director of the Arché Philosophical Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology I like thinking about – and helping other people think about – logic and philosophy and the many different ways they can inform each other.
