SharePoint 2007 How do My Site links work

As I thought the My SharePoint Sites are based on individual permissions. The My SharePoint Sites folder gets created by any of the Office 2007 applications and can be found in the following location:
C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\
The Office 2007 application suite is responsible for populating this folder. It will populate it based on what member groups you belong to within your SharePoint environment. Office will update this location once a day the first time you launch an Office 2007 application.
You can force an update of this location by deleting the following registry key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Portal\LinkPublishingTimestamp
If you delete that above key and simply restart one of your Office applications, it will repopulate that folder based on what it thinks you are a member of.
