Safe deleting
Authored by: wayneyoung on Oct 18, '02 10:33:55AM

Seems like a good idea, but I think moving the file to ~/.trash might make a bit more since. Of course you should NEVER delete anything you might possibly want again, but accidents do happen :^)

Safe deleting

I've tried that but .trash is a slippery beast. It only exists if there is something in it. That would be optimum of course so you didn't have to clean out /tmp, you could just empty the trash.
