I was having hella issues with Thanx lately (well, for the past three months) in terms of running the standard sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade commands because it would say X number of updates can be applied immediately, and then after that, when I actually DID apply them, I would get The Big Pink Screen (as I call it), and it would ask which kernel this or that I want to upgrade to, or replace, or whatever the hell. So, I would just choose the default option (which I think is to just keep everything the same) - but now, it gave me but ONE option, so of course I chose it, and everything upgraded/updated/did it's thing/yada yada, and now it says "No users are running outdated binaries", and no other updates need be applied, etc. So...GOOD!

I don't know what that was all about, but I hope I do not have to see the (intimidating) Big Pink Screen again when doing a simple update/upgrade.

Aside from that, there are no other relevant changes in terms of where I am actually at with the development of Thanx. I know that what I am doing will involve (to some extent) a fetch_assoc (or a "fetch array", or whatever the hell), but currently I am reading up on AJAX, because apparently fetch does the same shit as AJAX, but AJAX actually has some (thorough) documentation/explainers on W3Schools, so I am reading up on it and trying to find out what it's all about.

Basically, I (still) need to do all of the stuff outlined in this blog post here, and now I kinda have an idea of what to do, but getting down to the bare bones/nitty gritty of getting stuff done is where difficulty sets in. None of it is terribly straight forward, unfortunately.

So, we'll see what comes of what. Back later.
