I seem to remember with 8.2.x and earlier that, all too often, when 
I ran 'top' it would show 'olpc-update-query' using resources.

My XO was gotten through G1G1, and I am not using it in any kind of 
a "server" environment.  [Given the communications setup at my 
house, cron by itself does not even have the resources to 
successfully make a connection to the internet.]  In that situation, 
is it truly necessary for 'olpc-update-query' to be run ?
