When we set up our G4, we started out with 2 identities; we soon realized we din't need 2, so we deleted one of them (the "ck" identity we had created). Now there is a directory called "ck deleted" which "cannot be deleted," in the GUI, anyway.


So is there any reason not to assume root powers in the terminal and delete it from there? I.e., is it safe to delete that empty directory?


Thanks -- love the articles!
