It's a great feeling being able to start work in the morning with something on my to-do list already marked as DONE. Even something as simple and mundane as vacuuming downstairs, cutting the grass or banging in a few cable clips makes a difference. It sets the tone for the day - "today is a day where I'm going to get stuff done". It sets the ball rolling and builds momentum.

Le sigh. Swift bank holiday weekend upgrade to Xenial thwarted, because a 180MB /boot partition with 120MB free is too small. Have our kernel and initrd really more than doubled in size since Wily?
