If your Jpol ?J-handle? assignment wasn?t by random chance alone, then you?re one ?extra-sensory? Netizen. The Star-Trek mind-meld envelop, please? Captain Kirk, Commander Spock and my dearly departed Uncle Hymie would be proud of you. So, how could I dare to object?
You see, your selection of ?jpol? captures my powerfully propelling ?electro-magnetic? personality.
Jpol just happens to be an E-M fusion energy term associated with extracting power from the magnetic propulsion of lithium streams inside Tokamaks.
Beam me up, Scotty!...er-r-r?Cindi and go to Jpol:Warp Factor 10.
As regards your ?puter decisions?decisions?I had an exchange with one unhappy ?gdesktop? camper in the Win XP Forum. He eventually decided that the Google Desktop Beta wasn?t ready-for-primetime on his Dell machine, planned to do an uninstall and wait for the post-Beta release of gdesktop. My Dell loves it?Go Figure.
My understanding is its ?Search your own computer? function is ?completely separate? from the online search engine and the toolbar. The Google Desktop Search Beta Window does have buttons on it to take you to the Google Internet Web Search Engine at a mouse click, if you elect to go there. Also, if you put a term in the ?normal? Google Web Search Engine page slot and search for it, the top (first) listing is a gdesktop ?XXX [number of] results stored on your computer? summary of the that search term following the Google Desktop four color swirl logo, if it resides on your computer. Then below that is the ?normal? list of Web hits for that search term.
Your measure twice on your old legacy desktop machine, install once on your new Toshiba laptop is a ?Google Gal with a Plan.?
In the mean time, thanks to ?gdesktop beta,? there?ll be no Wrath of Khan, Jpol ? ia ? KON or otherwise, in the "googolplex" of data and files that reside on the HD of my warp speed Dell XPS.
