Ridiculous! My SSD has been running out of space and I blamed myself for being on a download binge!
Today was getting darn desperate! I've actually been pretty disciplined of late!
To investigate further, I fired up
/cores that was eating up 50 GB! (that's a lot on an SSD!).
Apparently, as mentioned here ... its cool to delete!
I went full-on and disabled this feature
sudo launchctl limit core 0 0
Back to a saner life! :-)
