The total installed size is the new installed size after the savings (Net Upgrade Size: -0.07 MiB) due to the package being smaller.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.

Don't you know it's a bad habit to click on every random item on web pages?

I know the shrink in this is small, but the kernel just got smaller, again!

You sound like a pretty jaded individual, Roger. I guess you probably wouldn't even be surprised to know that I actually own a pink tu-tu. I don't dance, though. ;)

How much would you pay? I'm pretty desperate these days. I'm seeking funding wherever I can find it.

Again today, it shrinks. You gotta love this.
Even when it doesn't shrink, it usually stays the same or only grows a tiny amount.
