WTF? Why does iMessage search suck so bad.

Can’t find a message that I JUST FRICKIN’ SENT a few days ago! Let’s try Googling:

Redditimessage

Well, I’m not the only one!

The inability to use the Messages app on the Mac to search message history is really a nuisance. That, and I’m noticing Spotlight search in general seems to really be crappy lately. I wrote this a while back which seemed to kickstart Spotlight back to life:

sudo mdutil -a -i off
sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist
sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist
sudo mdutil -a -i on

But it doesn’t work under Mojave. Bummer.
