Hi Lowell,

I'm disappointed to hear that I must be so blind that I don't see it,
but I'm happy to hear that it is clearly listed in your "man
periodic.conf"!  Would you mind copying/pasting the relevant variable
to disable the daily check for vulnerable packages?  I have put 15
minutes into finding this so please don't think I'm a lazy slob...
blind/stupid maybe but not lazy.

Thank you,
