Perhaps one day I’ll learn, but at my age I’d say it’s unlikely. I managed to completely bork my previous install of Mint. I was just getting it all cozy too. A real bummer. But I learned the very important lesson that it is beyond my scope to convert the 32 bit install of Mint to the 64 bit install. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking installing the 32 bit version in the first place. Anyway, now it’s back an 64 bit. Hopefully I can keep this one stable for at least a month.
