I am doing it again.
With the inevitability of taxes and as night follows day I have decided to fuck up my laptop.
I don’t know why I do it. I suppose it’s the gene that compels a lot of blokes to dismantle things to see how they work. I know that many times in the past I have reduced something to its constituent parts and reassembled it simply to see how it functioned even though it had been working perfectly. I have a wonderful collection of screws and bolts as a result but I haven’t actually broken anything yet.
This time, they made the mistake of announcing a new release of Linux Mint [Beta]. Immediately I felt it – that irresistible urge to install it despite dire warnings that it’s only at the testing stage.
I know I shouldn’t do it.
I know I will probably regret it.
