Attn: beta testers - temp directory

If you do not have a 20g drive and actually have to worry about disk space, please clean out your Temp directory (C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Temp\).  A bug in the beta prevented CityDesk from cleaning up one directory that we used when publishing (named CityDesk_<PID>) so you'll probably have a chock full directory filled with them.  Sorry for the inconvenience, I just fixed the bug and the next beta will alleviate the problem - but it won't clean up the old directories since they use the process ID in the name.

I have some files here:

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CITYDESK_-526437
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CITYDESK_-621353
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CITYDESK_-497215
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CITYDESK_-884423
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CITYDESK_-871895
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CITYDESK_-671329

Are these the ones you are talking about?  Should I deleted these?

And also a bunch (24) of files like this:
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CityDeskExternal_-714551
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\CityDeskExternal_-715373

Dump them?

dump 'em all.
but wait till the next beta (monday) because otherwise more will come in their place :)
(They're empty, and not taking up much room)

Oops.  Yep, Joel's right, they should all be empty, so they aren't taking up any disk space at all really...
