What's With the Tilde After the Stack File Extension?

Gregory,

If you're felling like doing some unix, then you can launch console.app (not
terminal.app, I keep mixing them) and check out the logs in there, specially
system.log. There might be some hint in there. Once my system was taking
about 10 minutes to boot up, after being fed up for months, I decided to
look at the logs. What was happening was that once upon a time, I had
installed parallels and vmware, their kernel stuff were still loading even
though I did not had the apps anymore but the biggest criminal was an HP
monitor thing for the printer that I don't have anymore that would stall the
system for minutes while it loaded. Now I know better....

Cheers
andre
