It's on a machine that was wiped clean just a week ago, including
/home.  So it is rather clean.  Winding swappiness down to 10 seems to
have done the trick.  But before, it seemed like the hard disk was
continually running.  I also notice with top that there are a bunch of
instances of chromium running at the same time, even though I only
opened one.  Is there any way to make top focus on a single process or
set of processes?
