    Are you always trying out new software? Or always updating your drivers / software?

    I love updating and trying out new software. I usually have to format a lot more, but now I have another test PC that I test flakey software with via Remote Desktop.

    All the **** time. As soon as they released Server 2k3 I had to get my hands on it, and I don't even run a server at this time. But I love trying out new software, especially operating systems, system tools, network tools, stuff like that. And yeah, I've to reformat a lot more often, but that's fine, I don't mind at all. I'm on dial-up, so whenever we visit my in-laws I go download happy on their ultrafast broadband. I d/l operating systems etc at around 350 kb/s and burn them on disc. Usually come back with 15-25 cd-r's full of new software to try.

    It's a DISEASE I tell ya. But a lot healthier than smoking.

    I update stuff every night cause all I have to do is run:
    # pacman -Syu
    and everything on my system (that has an update available) is updated.
