Almost a month ago today, I said I was going to take a month's "vacation" from my computer. Well, I almost made it. I moved out with my brother which was very time consuming and we didn't have internet for almost a week, so that probably helped. Even after we got internet again, I didn't boot into Mint for almost a week as well, but then I needed to do some homework, which works best with g++, so I booted into Mint....and the rest is history.
Anyway, I was very close. Kinda nice, I'll probably try to do it again.
