That was my plan unless someone had a more accepted KDE method. (I.e.
- something that kept the file but compressed it significantly.) I
suspect I can likely get rid of it completely as it hasn't been
touched in months. I was also thinking I could enable the nepomuk
feature in system settings and at least check the date I end up with.

Basically I _think_ I turned off nepomuk as it would start indexing at
inopportune times creating too much CPU usage and therefore risk
messing up my real-time trading taking place in Windows VMs. I suspect
the last time I ran into that might have been a couple of months ago
but I only found the file last week.

Thanks for the inputs!
