Thanks, Peter.

I am 95% over a head cold.  If I am a 99-100% this evening, I will be there.  At long last.  (It has been a busy schedule for me this semester.)

Meanwhile, an old high school friend emailed me about an issue.  He is a dipping his toe into linux after much wallowing in you-know-what.  (His dad was an IBMer in Almaden.)  It is as follows:

So I've got this netbook with a 4GB SSD hard drive and ubuntu
installed. I ran one system update and it filled up the entire hard
drive. I was going to clear out the localization, but I can't figure
out how to do it, or how to free up space in any meaningful way.

Any thoughts?  Thanks, in advance, Guys.

  It's completely normal that you lose data on "Windows" platforms.
  That's why you have a Linux/BSD/UNIX server for backups.
