@Fabby Thank you Fabby. How's your day / night going?
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix Been invited by a friend to help him prepare for a job interview and been served a very nice home-cooked meal.

@WinEunuuchs2Unix So not bad... How are you doing so far?
I accidentally booted into Windows and noticed I haven't done any updates since June...
 
@Fabby I moved last weekend which was quite the chore indeed. Just relaxing now a bit and planning new furniture and window coverings, etc.
