Sure. my default is the asterisk. ...Anyway, i used matthew's -r
for recursion [with rsync] and even tested --delete on some junk
then slowly, got rid of more junk [[unused for =years=]]
directories and files. pretty soon i'll be ready to save
everything from here [tao/present/oldtao] to ethic. then i'll
move everything to the newtao. then i'll give away my '03 tower.
"do unto others... " or whatever:)
