Yesterday I resolved firmly to finally replace the fan in my laptop with the replacement that had been sitting on the corner of my desk for the last several months. The surgery went swimmingly, and the patient's physical ails had been addressed. With time to burn I decided to upgrade to Ubuntu 13.10 since the next release is an LTS release and why not? Reasons why not made themselves evident, I'm sure I'll weave an epic tale of them soon. FreeBSD 10 and 10.1 can't come soon enough.
