Untitled[edit]

I think some of this text is not really up to encyclopedia standards. "you are thus warned!" in at least two places as well as refernced to "me" without any reference to who that person is.

It should really be rewritten. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.15.190.221 (talkcontribs) 05:04, 2005 August 25

Merge Sherlock 3 into Sherlock (software)[edit]

There are a couple of useful bits in Sherlock 3 that can be used in this article, otherwise it doesn't have the content to stand on it's own. Dread Lord CyberSkull ✎☠ 09:08, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Before there was Sherlock, there was Find Pro[edit]

You might want to write more about the origins of this software. Sherlock was originally a shareware product called "Find Pro," written by Bill Monk. Apple acquired the software, rolled it into System 7.5 and renamed it "Find File," although they continued the version numbers (Find File was verson 1.1.2). Version 2 added internet search capabilities, and Apple renamed it Sherlock. Confusingly, version 3.0.1 was named Sherlock 2. Version 3.6 came with Panther. Archola 22:59, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Perhaps...[edit]

But Find File was very different from Sherlock.. and drastically different from Sherlock 2. Sure, they shared traits, maybe were even based upon the same code, but they were markedly different. I do agree that something should be said, though.

I second that emotion. Find File (which also existed in the Mac OS itself) scanned the directories for filenames, and that's it. Sherlock first builds indexes of ANY content, including filenames, the contents of those files, etc. Sure, you could use Sherlock to find files, but that's not all it did.

Fair use rationale for Image:Sherlock3.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sherlock3.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 16:03, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
