I don't think he was being funny. I have been around a long time and

I am sure there is tons of stuff that you don't know and shame on

I would humbly suggest that the smiley face added by Chris was meant
to imply humor and that given the number of times the recommendation
to move the /boot partition has been suggested in numerous threads in
