Rebuilding the MacBook Pro

For a variety of reasons I've decided to take my MacBook Pro to ground zero.  This morning I pushed the button on the OS X install disk and today I've been re-loading the essentials.  I keep a lot of applications on this machine.  I am, however, only going to load the applications I actually use as I rebuild it.  That is right.  My applications are on notice.  They are going to have to *earn* their way back.

It will be interesting to see just how bloated my applications folder becomes in a few months.  Stay tuned.
