@ Juanito - Do you know what is the significance of the  number ("2020") right after the pound sign in /proc/version ?

Trying this out to just now, I initially thought, "That's nice, I'm using a kernel that was compiled today.... Hmmmm...", before catching the "2019" at the end of the date string.    :)

That's the build version number. I usually put whatever fun number I feel like at the time.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
