YEP! As follows

locate something losely what your looking for | grep something more specific

Means not much hides and doesn't take long to find it - oh and run the
updatedb from time to time :), Most "corporate" focused find file progries
bit the big one to say the least (seems most l-users prefer this because the
think it "thinks for them"?). Anyway find-utils is much easier AFAIC, faster
and only works when executed. Beagle (aka kerry?) such cycles endlessly and
ain't all the much more useful.

Just my $0.02. Cheers, Curtis.
