it should be there for VMs, persistent USBs, and for people who install the
OSGeo "OS" onto their hard drive from the DVD or a USB stick.

But right now it is checking daily, we should have it check weekly so that
single-use boots from the DVD never see it (or maybe only see it 1/7th of
the time, I'm not sure how it counts).

the challenge is to find which text file on the OS controls that setting.
