I thought . signified start searcnhing in current directory and
I was down in / that it would search everything. I now know from that I
should use / to make it search the entire system.
I boobooed the part about using " when also using wildcards, it's
awhile since I had to use un*x so even my user skills are rusty let alone
non-existent admin skills.
