Tis the season I guess. I have at least 5 different applications/toolsets that need to be upgraded. Somehow, even for a techno geek such as myself, upgrades are always accompanied by a sense of apprehension. A fear of rejection of the upgrade that sets the entire system into a spiral of degeneration leading to multiple untraceable BSDs or an apparent slowdown of the overall computer system.
Having said that, it is time to overcome my fears for as the old adage goes, no guts no glory. Will report later on the overall success/frustration ratio.
