The longer I have Ubuntu the more I dread upgrades because I get it
just right and then it all breaks again. Not just talking errors here.
There are all the custom things I like that get lost too. Sometimes
the middle ages with little change in a life starts looking good after
watching how fast computers change. I still know the C64 memory
locations for stuff. Talk about useless knowledge!

This error has been  a fun ride and glad to be RID of it!
