Your systems works, the way you set it up? Keep it that way. Make sure you write 
down everything you did (if you haven't already forgotten...). The next time you 
do an update may be a good year or two away.

As anyone who's been on this list for a while will tell you, if it ain't broke, 
walk away quietly and enjoy your system. At least until you find a bug that gets 
on your nerves...or the SO decides he/she wants $FEATURE...

Mind you, there are also the hardened geeks like myself who just can't leave 
well enough alone...
