Pretty much the same here, with the exception that I do not update all
my software regularly. I generally update the pkgsrc branch when a new
one is released, but only rebuild packages when there is a reason
(security issue, user request).
Except most of the good bits were about frogs, I remember that.
You would not believe some of the things about frogs.
