Yes, I did reboot. I probably was rebooting my system every few days, just 
because my Firefox seems to be interfering with my network connection. And 
while I was learning the differences in a Debian system (in contrast to 
Ubuntu), I also rebooted constantly, because I was constantly messing up my 
system. For the past few months, though, my system has been fairly stable, 
and I haven't been downloading and installing new packages. 

Right now the problems are: 1) my vanishing partition, 2) why Firefox messes 
up my network connection, and 3) minor bugs. 

Nowadays I might go a week or two without rebooting, unless I end up with no 
space left on my root partition.
