Well, I have other junk and I don't know where some of it came from and 
it isn't all hidden.

There is a problem with "hidden" files and directories.  Konqueror KFM 
has an option: "Show Hidden Files".  Not all applications have this, 
they show them and there is no option to hid them.  I have over a 120 
hidden files and directories in my HOME directory.  Open your HOME 
directory in Firefox. :-(

Simple solution: Only use HOME for configuration stuff; if its a data 
file, put it in $HOME/Files/...
