Many will say "if it aint broke, don't fix it'. Me, I am an engineer,
and I say 'If it aint broke I aint tweaked it enough' and I will get
the latest whatever-I-can.
That said, I think this is a great question. I too would like to
know, having now got a working Myth, how do I stay at the bleeding
edge, without busting it all up?
