Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
