Great article and tips.
Small detail to report...., root needs to be enabled in OSX before the "sudo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb &" will work. Your assumption was probably that like you, many keep root enabled on standalone OSX Macs. I'm Terminal newbie, but tried your tip anyway. It worked fine, and I'm happy that you provided the nudge.
