Date Tags tweaks

When running top from the command line, the process GTK-gnash always showed up usually with three instances of it. Killing it didn't seem to make much difference, it just reappeared again, and the killed ones became zombies. So, how to get rid of it?

The answer is to use apt-get to remove gnash which is a GNU Shockwave Flash [swf] player. This also removes browser-plugin-gnash. As I don't like watching flash programs/videos it was an easy decision to get rid of it.

Running sudo apt-get autoremove also removes the following orphan files - gnash-common, gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3, libboost-date-time1.42.0, libboost-thread1.42.0, but I've yet to see any benefit of removing them, except to get rid of unused files.
