I hate it when that happens...

I've been trying to figure out why, why, why my /var partition was filling up.  
Not logs, not the package cache, not this, not that, not the other.

Then it hit me.  I've been downloading random things to look at to /tmp for 
months since the last reboot.  Source for Open Office, kdelibs, kdebase, the 
kitchen sink and my bathtub too.  I had four gigabytes of accumulated cruft 
that I was just more or less waiting on the next reboot to get rid of for me.  

tmp -> /var/tmp


I put /tmp on /var because /var is a separate partition, and I wanted all the 
usual over-flowable stuff contained somewhere off /.

Anyone know where I can buy a bigger hard disk for my brain?  This one is 
getting bad sectors, I think.
