true, as as i should have responded to 'poc'.

yet, to my thinking [or lack] with something in condition of 1st f9
release, i would rather install new 'fixed' in event that for some
reason or other, something may have not been updated.

granted, a lot of configuring has to be done and one day i will start
using some sort of revision tracker, or tripwire equivalent, to handle
tracking what gets changed.

all in all, i do not feel that repetition is that much of a waste of my
time as it does help build familiarity with a system.

when there is an upgrade, ie, f8 to f9, i will not try to upgrade f8. i
will keep f8 and do a new install of f9 and use both until i am sure
that upgrade is working properly. then and only then will i get rid of

granted also, this analogy is not same as 1st f9 being replaced with
f9 respin, but it is as close as i can think of now to explain my

in a way, i am like a man who wears both a belt and suspenders. cyoa.
