Well, I have 15. Giving that I need 48 hrs continous operation for
reliable results, that will make it 30 days. no that is not long for a
user needing actually to do other stuff..

And if the next thing you tell me is not to use so many extensions, I
will gladly switch to KDE or even better re-install Windows.

Please, you are not helping, instead, you are asking me to do some
time-consuming thing that I am not even an expert in, although I was the
one offering to help out, that is counter-productive..
