It just makes sense to me to have it there.  It interferes with normal
operation of a couple of apps, but nothing that pisses me off too much.

lol, and me only on a P/// 800 with 512MB RAM ... most powerful machine in
the room *sigh* and me with a pile of servers too.

Most people enjoy seeing the "Huge Fucking Playlist", others ponder long and
hard as to why I have so many windows open at once - I always thought two or
three at a time just wasn't normal - but most people do immediately twig my
"random crap to sort" folder on my desktop ... it's only filled with 159MB
of stuff, which pales next to stuff I have dotted around my network ... the
"random guff" folder (719MB), the "dump" folder (1.25GB), the "downloads"
folder (4.41GB) ... *sigh*
