Have you ever searched lost document/email for more than 1minute?

For the last couple of weeks I was working with few smart guys on the MetaTracker project. It is a tool designed to extract information and metadata from your personal data, so it can be searched in seconds. Jamie, maintainer of the MetaTracker applied most of my changes upstream, but there are still few to go for, that is why I have made packages with all of them.

Now available with experimental support for Thunderbird e-mails, so please check it out and give comments!

Shiny MetaTracker in action with deskbar applet handler made by
Fritschy (also included in the installation script):

How do I install MetaTracker
\* The packages installed by the script were checked on Solaris Nevada (x86) build 67 and 72.
\* Just download the install-script and run it. Many thanks to Erwann Chénedé, for sharing the installation scripts, which he used for Compiz!
The MetaTracker packages are build with debug option.

This script will:
- remove the previous version of tracker installed on the machine
- install the new packages

If you want to check try Thunderbird support, you should install tracker and follow the steps:
\* Download the tracker.xpi file
\* Install in the Thunderbird using option Tools->Add-ons
\* Restart Thunderbird
\* Restart trackerd daemon (or simply logout/login)

The Thunderbird plugin is modified version of the one made by Pierre Östlund for the Beagle application. In the future I hope we will be able to make one generic plugin for both projects, what I am discussing with Pierre.

Solaris Express Developer Edition arrives in 8 days - COOL!

Since my blog feed is also on the Polish OpenSolaris Planet I have decided to translate the entries to Polish :-)

In English/Po angielsku
----------------------------------
Yesterday after coming back from the 11th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting I have found the envelope with the Solaris Express Developer Edition for x86 systems inside. The best thing is that it arrived 8 days after I have ordered it (of course for FREE)! That is cool, isn't it?

So going back to the 18th of June 2007, I have requested the free Solaris DVD Software kit. Five seconds later an e-mail arrived with the information, that the Solaris Express Developer Edition 5/07 DVD for x86 will be available June 22nd. On the 26th of June I have found it between two doors, where normally postman is dropping all the post. So the 8 days is really fast. Moreover 26-22 gives actually 4 days!!! I would like to download the dvd image so fast with my current broadband :-)

In Polish/Po polsku
----------------------------------
Wczoraj po przyjściu z 11-go spotkania irlandzkiej grupy użytkowników OpenSolarisa zobaczyłem koperte z płytą Solaris Express Developer Edition wersja dla procesorów z rodziny x86. Najlepsze jest to, że dotarła do mnie 8 dni po tym jak ją zamówiłem (oczywiście całkowicie za darmo)! Całkiem imponujące, nieprawdaż?

Tak więc wracając do 18-go Czerwca 2007 roku, zamówiłem darmową płytkę "Solaris DVD Software kit". Po pięciu sekundach otrzymałem e-mail z informacją, że "Solaris Express Developer Edition 5/07 DVD for x86" będzie dostępny 22-go Czerwca. 26-go znalazłem ją pomiędzy drzwiami, tam, gdzie normalnie listonosz zostawia przesyłki. 8 dni wspaniale, jednak gdy się zastanowimy, 26-22 daje tak na prawdę 4 dni!!! Chciałbym z taką prędkością ściągnąć obraz dvd przy moim obecnym połączeniu internetowym :-)
