23 Aug 2017 / Never update anything

I updated my Broadcom driver and my wifi stopped working. #archlinux made fun of me for running a two year old kernel, so I went ahead and upgraded that. It did fix my wifi but somehow it broke ASAN. WTF seriously

I caved to the stupid Whatsapp bug where it scrolls up to some random position whenever you open a conversation (which was introduced last time I updated) and the new version has some dumb crap merging photos together that is annoying and terribly implemented.

I always know in my head that literally nothing good can come from updating software but I still do it. It's a bad habit that I need to break. Of course on Linux that means I can never install new software because everything has to be dynamically linked against the latest versions and broken against everything else.
