I resemble that remark!
But, slightly more seriously, I've read what you said, not just noticed

I've gotten at least that to work a few times. But for me, keeping up
with OS upgrades is one of the most important sysadmin tasks. Otherwise,

You beat me to it. And if that's the order of magnitude, then I was right
