This machine I am updating is sort of a play thing. I do not rely on it
working at all times. I mainly use it to track the builds.

Frequency of updates is not really the whole issue. I could update once
a year. If I just happened to get a bad build that time, I am just as
screwed as if I updated all along and hit that bad build. Builds do not
by their nature come with a quality rating.

I am not complaining about anything. I am happy with the build service!
But when something goes wrong, I do try to sort it out.

I wonder why smart is not selecting to update this. It is in my list of
things to update. Something to check this evening. Thanks for the tip.
