Restored 50GB on my SSD on Mac by deleting /cores

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 ncdu. Found /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! :-)
