I wish someone would set up a web page which made it clear how many times you
need to uninstall and install stuff to get things to work.

I have a chart in my garage which shows how many times I have to remove
and replace the engine in my car to fix common issues like flat tires,
streaky windshields, and suspicious cab odors.  It has proven invaluable in
keeping my car running for almost two years.  I did hurt my back a little but,
small price to pay...
