Mac of Magnesia

Internal disk drive getting full? Running out of space? Time to turn to DeLocalizer, which will hunt down and remove all those foreign-language support files tucked away in the nooks and crannies of your MacOS X operating system.

After I downloaded and installed it (it's free), I noticed the program said to expect up to 200MB worth of files to be removed, and it might take 15 minutes to do so.

We were running out to a Chinese restaurant so I left the program running.

Here's what I saw when I got back tonight:

A wee bit more than the expected 200MB. My guess: the MacOS X Developer Kit had a lot of localization stuff in it.

Speaking of Chinese Restaurants . . .
Here's the fortune I got in the fortune cookie:

Now, how does one parse that?
