OK, thanks. Even if they are 5 years old and there are many newer  
ones? They are size 0, but still, I find it weird they would fill up  
that folder seemingly indefinitely.

Does it make a difference if I'm the only user ever using Apache on my  
local machine (for testing websites I'm working on)? I actually  
blocked port 80 in my firewall, so no outsider could ever hit my Apache.

Thanks for your replies!
