"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."

Stopping Spotlight Indexing

While I don't really have a problem with metadata indexing in theory, I really dislike having mds kick up to 50% CPU on my laptop, which engages the Fan Whose Pitch Is Just Right to Set My Teeth On Edge (Of Doom County). While I'm not sure if I'll actually disable indexing, the Spotlight overview there was pretty informative.

Unlike, say, this, which is just full of retardedness.
