I use that after I compile my new kernels from source and respond to the
questions presented by 'make oldconfig'. I keep personal documentation


This is a really important tip. It makes building a new kernel sooo
much easier.



on the kernel config settings that are relevant for my machines, and I

Scientists are people, too. IOW, they also "crave power, money,
respect, and influence, and they also fear for their jobs. Each
can be a healthy motivator, but each has the ability to turn a
good scientist into a bad one; and in some cases, they can turn
a good scientist into a charlatan."
