I apologize if I came off a little terse, that was not my intent. I
generally write what comes to mind at the time and forget to re-read
and correct and errors of judgement.

Since I started using the -f (force option) prior to my hospital stay
in January, I don't really remember the reason. I have a bash alias
set up which allows me to type pacu for the pacman -Uf command. I lost
a lot of memory due to CO2 poisoning when I crashed in January and
really can't remember. I just keep picking up the pieces and moving
trying to move on. That's one reason I'm running [testing], it
provides me with some challenges when things break. I get to learn new
things. By compiling my own packages and sorting out what's wrong when
something doesn't work I gain insight about how things fit together.
Most Arch users probably know this, but using a computer is about
learning how a computer works, why it does what it does, and how to
make it do what you want it to do.

Enough babbling, I'll flag imagemagick out of date and calibre as
well, there is a new version out.

Life's fun when your sick and psychotic!
