Delete system caches for faster disk image mounting
Authored by: spacehaven on Sep 23, '03 12:16:53PM
I'll to try this out for a few weeks and see if I see an improvement. I created a crontab entry as follows:

0 3 * * * /bin/rm -r /Users/YOU/Library/Caches /Library/Caches /System/Library/Caches

Replace YOU with your username. This will run every morning at 3am. Oh, and add it to root's crontab (sudo crontab -e).

I can't vouch for it's security, and it's quite possible for other users to break things on a multiuser system (i.e.: ln -s /etc/hosts.deny /Library/Caches/biteme). Be careful!
