comment How to apply a command to a list of files with spaces produced by another command?
@slhck, I've updated the question to contain my original command. Find can't do everything. Can find filter by date? For example, how would one delete the 10 newest downloaded files.

Hennes I couldn't use find since one of the etc commands was a tail which sorted my files by date.

$ IFS='\n' 'rm ls the*' gives me: rm: cannot remove ‘the file\nthe file2\nthe file3’: No such file or directory

I would think that if the monitor is placed, say, in the middle of the room, every time you look slightly off the monitor your depth of vision has to switch from near-sighted to far-sighted, which gives your eyes some sort of workout every now and then.

comment google-voice not working outside of gnome
That might help diagnose the problem, but Ubuntu loads a bunch of crap and I'd have to google each one to see what's important.
