This is precisely the problem: there is no package called -clarify- to
uninstall. Its component routines (-estsimp-, -setx- and -simqi-) were
downloaded to their respective a-z folders in C:/ado/plus (where they
ought to be), so it should be a routine thing to simply

. ado uninstall clarify.pkg


. ado uninstall estsimp

but every time, it returns

package not found

Now, for whatever reason, there is no record of my copy of -clarify- in
stata.trk. I've no idea why. I'm going to keep searching for a one-shot
solution to this little local difficulty, but the odds are that I'm going
to have take them out manually: a pain, but at least it will work.

Whereever you go and whatever you do, just remember this. No matter how
many like you, admire you, love you or adore you, the number of people
turning up to your funeral will be largely determined by local weather
