delete what files in /tmp. I just said not to take any assertion that
you MUST use mode 1777 at face value. Know why it is suggested and
decide for yourself whether it is necessary. If it's just you and your wife
using your computer, what's the big deal? I would advocate the sticky
bit for any public-access site though. While /tmp should not be used
for anything but transient files, it would be rude for someone to delete
them while you really are in the middle of using them.
