No not my computer, me. I've managed to pickup an acute coryza virus. It causes
/dev/random to constantly pass data to
/Volumes/nose. I don't think I got this from reading email, but I'm pretty sure it was a windows user who passed it to me.
If I flush my partitions to disk every now and then I can get by with a clean
/Volumes/nose for a while before
/dev/random starts clogging it up again.
