12 PM isn't 12 AM, As I work two jobs, seven days a week, my computer hours vary widely. Lately it's been between 11PM and 3AM, hence all my mistakes.

Webmail, this list and multiple locations and pc's. If I had a laptop, then I could.

I had one distro, that I liked long ago, go nuts (see sco formerly Caldera, from pentium 1 days), I have received bad disks from magazines, watched companies go bankrupt, had my new installation support, on the licensed machine go ignored, etc. I posted in an earlier post about how I plan on making the floppies, and doing an ftp install, on my new (from parts, with Suse) server system, as I don't want to unscrew a dvd from another machine, and I consider that a good learning experience. But I refuse to just play with one distro. Distro's can disappear, be neglected, go off in a direction I chose not to, eliminate one program that I like from them, for another, etc. I choose to not be distrocentric a long time ago.
