Not entirely true.  Does anyone know of a convenient replacement for 
'rm' which isn't so immediate (like the windows trash can?)  My 
boyfriend suggests a script and a cron job to delete out old files but I 
bet someone has a better idea.  I did a quick search but didn't find 
anything all that wonderful.
