Finally, I've downloaded everything (I hope) after 12 hours.  Now the indexing started about an hour ago.  I've been watching it countdown....20 mins left.  I hope I can use it after this.  I'm probably not going to get much sleep.  I have class tomorrow and need to finish my exegesis....  The longest 20 mins!  Geeked

John, you can use the program while it's indexing!

You just won't get much love with searching.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Hmmmmm, Bob's point of getting Logos out this soon was so that users (including students) could get a head start for the following semester. Did he also envision the potential for students to possibly get lower/bad grades because they were guilty of playing with Logos? Stick out tongue

John the estimate can be misleading because certain resources especially interlinears can really throw it off. There was a lot of discussion and concern in adding the estimate by Team Logos because of all the variables. Number of resources, type of resources, processor type, amount of ram, what else is running on your system, etc...

It could go from an hour to a few minutes left to go depending on the resources it has left to go...

Don't forget that if you have work to get done, you can still work in V3.

I have been, thanks.  Thanks for all your concerns about my work and grades.  I am just about done.  Maybe there is something in the indexing and countdown that is waiting for me to finish before it completes......hmmmm....

 

LOL

Well indexing usually does max out the processor, many of us learned to save indexing for overnight or when we would not be using our systems. However it is MUCH improved from the beginning indexing! So if you are working with say V3 and Word, etc. open it could be slowing indexing down a bit...

For better or worse, I found on my 1GB machine that the last few moments would drag on forever if I was doing much of anything because the Logos Indexer needed as much memory as I could give it during the last phases of creating the index.  The processor demands were not a problem.  The MEMORY was.  Of course, there are many people who have more memory than my machine.

Well worth the wait.  GREAT JOB Logos.  Now, the uncomfortable period that requires me to finish my work and then play when I am done.

Yep, I'm frustrated.  Downloading file plus 1.6 gig took 25 minutes.  1.5hr later I still have over 3 hrs of indexing to go.  Anyway, I guess 1 gig of ram on a 2002 xp is outdated.  Perhaps I can use this software tomorrow.  This machine is so bogged down.

It will be worth it....in the morning :-) Actually I've added a lot to my library today and I've been waiting to do a full index so I am off to bed leaving my computer to fully reindex.

Awoke this am, windows updated last night and the indexing is starting over. Apparently there is not way it can start where it left off. This is the third time the indexing has restarted when it was almost complete. Come on, don't you think there can be an interruption and be able to start where it left off for something that takes a day to complete. 24hrs with Logos 4 and still 7 hrs left to finish indexing. Please advise if this is unusual and I need to contact support, or if I just need to get through another day of indexing and hope if finishes.

John,

I wish that I'd written on the forums how important it was to turn off Windows automatic updates. This happened to me and I raised my concerns loud and clear. In the end, I just had to change my Windows settings to notify me of updates but not to download and install them.

Someone from Logos can hopefully explain why they are unable to just interrupt indexing and have it start again... Apparently it ain't easy.

Well, the good news is Logos beat my antivirus. Last night right after I started a full re-index Macafee started up. I thought, boy, this should be a good turtle race. That was 11pm. this morning at 7am Mcafee had 15 minutes left.

I couldn't have dreamed for just 20 minutes, no matter how relative.  I started downloading the 7.7 gig at 4 p.m and that finished by 9 p.m. then it indexed overnight.  Tried a few things in the morning but work was calling me.  I will have to wait until I get home now to try things out.  Does anyone know if you order the DVD's, that this process will take a whole lot less time?  I just want to be prepared for the next time I may have to do this.

Yes, nearly all that downloading, as there could be a small component still requiring a download (updates + resources not on DVD).
