comment Where are the good docs?
Answering the points raised, Spotlights metadata includes last modified time, allowing me to ask "What just changed?" As for root, I am root. It's my system, on my network. It phones all over the place, not just home. Undocumented in the included help. The "Firewall" only restricts incoming, not outgoing packets, and those outgoing packets are undocumented in the help, as are their destinations. I cross borders with that machine. My experience tells me that it is wise to know what your tools are doing, and to whom they speak to about your location, and actions.

@Martín Whyever would you say such a cryptically ominous thing, my dear fellow? Apple instructions are for their best interests, certainly, which at times vary with what I perceive to be my own interests, undoubtedly, but surely you have some reasoning for this statement? An answer perhaps?

I think I got it working by forcing it using the root user, mdutil -E / Seems obvious but I'm unsure. I can find ARD agent and all that other stuff now though...
