I've found that there are really no issues with regards to running a new OS for long periods of time. There was a time when regular reinstalls were a part of my regimen but that is long past. I reinstall only when there's a specific need. That doesn't mean I just put up with a slow computer either, I demand very fast performance from my systems. A reinstall just isn't needed to maintain that.

Likewise, components have gotten much better, and upgrades more incremental, so I've found the need to buy new hardware that would necessitate a reinstall to be less.

My guess? This person either has crap on their system that causes issues, or this is just a "magic incantation" they've always done for supposedly better performance without understanding or examination.

Leave it to motherfucking Jeremiah Cornelius, whose opinions are so fucking important that he just has to barge his fat ass to the front of the line to reply to the post which will get him closest to the top, no matter whether that post has anything to do with what he wishes to say.

What an asshole.


Thanks for living in the past.

You are noble. In the best and most approving sense of the word.

There are people who haven't faced a fraction of your difficulty, who are yet to perform the level of introspection you've mustered to understand how they behave - and to derive from it a mission or a wish.

"but it is possible to be happy and depressed, the thoughts are not mutually exclusive."

Yes. Happiness is a real trip.

I don't know if we'd get along together in "real life" - but around this ASCII-space, I'm one of your real fans and supporters. And I'm glad to be.

Fear of death. Mortal anxiety.

We are not talking about reality of non-material consciousness or ontology.

This is a discussion of the organising principle in broad human endeavour. The Pharaoh was never son of Horus. Democracy and Liberty were never the aim of establishing an international body to manage world order.
