In any case, life is short. Stay cool.

Hey, I'm all for that! I truly believe in the KISS philosophy: Keep It Simple Stupid. Definitely applicable here. I certainly have no problem understanding the 3 different approaches to upgrading, with pros and cons of each one. But, such pros and cons need to be pointed out when having such discussions. I have certainly done that. Others, though, seem to forget to do that, and also get peeved when someone like myself points out that omission.

But yeah, life is short, and staying cool is always, always good advice. I am certainly cool with that. Not sure about other folks, though.

Thoroughly predictable! wink

You seriously need to stop using baseless, big words, tossing around innuendos, waffling on issues, and behaving like you're running for office, in general, and get over yourself, in particular.

Having descended into an exchange of ad hominem attacks totally unsupported by objective evidence, this thread is closed.

Congratulations on getting the last word!
