cd /usr/local/scratch/
mkdir junk
find /var/spool/postfix -exec grep "" '{}' \; | awk '{print($3)}' | xargs -J X mv X ./junk/

The "find" produces

Binary file /var/spool/postfix/active/D/D8832E38 matches
Binary file /var/spool/postfix/active/D/D78EC1C72 matches

The awk


And then the mv, moves it.

                    To always show the vertical scrollbar, regardless of whether there is content to scroll (à la Internet Explorer), add this to userContent.css

html {
     overflow: -moz-scrollbars-vertical;

Tested in Firefox 1.0 and above.                
                    To have a <DIV> shrink and enlarge based on its content, use this CSS:

div.autosize { display: table; width: 1px; }
div.autosize > div { display: table-cell; }

In your HTML, enclose the <DIV> you want autosized in another <DIV> with class="autosize"


I want this to be auto sized!


<div class="autosize">
I want this to be auto sized!

Tested in Firefox, Mozilla, Safari, Opera 7, and Internet Explorer 6.                
                    If you have a table with rowspans and colspans, it's especially likely that IE6 will begin to ignore your width settings (even if they all add up to the right number) and create a monster table that spreads off into the distance. If your tables work perfectly in FF/Safari/etc, and in IE6 your content is positioned properly but the invisible elements of the table (visible only with borders on) extends to the side so that you get a horizontal scroll bar no matter what you do, you might want to try this drastic CSS tweak:

html {
    overflow-y: hidden;

If that doesn't work, try it in body:
body {
    overflow-y: hidden;

<disclaimer>Note that this is somewhat hackish, as a last resort if you *know* your tables are *fine* and IE6 is screwing up, and that overflow-x/y are IE6-only and not real CSS. </disclaimer>
