i’ve been moving all my media, back ups, docs and music to one server that i can access from any anywhere in the house. it’s coming along slowly, but i wanted to have some fast searching on it–and with the new google desktop search it’s almost possible, but it can only search the local machine. well, here’s the google desktop proxy which will allow you do search a machine with the google desktop search app from another computer.
