Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2 21G 1.6G 19G 8% /

I keep all my code and "/home"-ish stuff under /x. I keep all my
scripts under "/x/x" (easy to type). I treat "/home/$USER" as scratch
space. I only backup the extra partitions -- all of "/" is disposable.
I've scripted all my stuff the point where I can just blow the "one big
partition" with no attendant problems.
Giant disks are $cheep.
