Yes that's right, kill it, before my laptop, myself or both go out of 
the window.  Why, my disk has been clattering away for the last 4 hours 
and it's getting right up my nose?  My annoyance is mostly due to moving 
away from Windows so that the anti-virus wasn't constantly hammering my 
disk, instead jbd2 has taken over.  I could understand it if I thought 
it had something to do, but it's beyond my extremely limited knowledge 
of ubuntu.  Worse is that it will go hours or even days without a peep. 
What gives?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
