Make sure that it only lists users that are "human". In Slackware,
all system users (not people) have a UID < 100 ... may vary for
your system, have a look at /etc/passwd. But if you DON'T have people's
in other directories than home, why bother? :) Just use the find.
It's a regular expression against which all found files (including
their path) are matched; you said you only wanted to delete files which
hadn't been accessed in a week from the .thumbnail directory of any user.
What our find does is to search for all files (-type f) under /home that
have the component /.thumbnails/ in their path (.+ means one or more character)
and that have and access time of over a week (-atime +7).
It does NOT search for a path that looks like that.
