    Will this update automatically? Or will I need to install the updates manually?

  2. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit
    and sources back to your website? My blog is in the exact same niche
    as yours and my visitors would genuinely benefit from some of the information
    you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you.
    Many thanks!

      YES. I do mind. you have one post only, don’t expect to get credit by scraping my blog/nieche.

      ps: serios, ma deranjeaza. ai un singur post, backlinkurile tale nu m-ar ajuta cu absolut nimic.

    sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-saucy gives you 3.11 kernel.
