looks like plain laziness to me

Your problem anyway
for urgencies get a paid consultancy service, not a free one
or learn to plan Your time better, and allocate time for manual reading

//

where n is the new limit

Hope it can help!

Suppose you used code someone (new user of otherwise) gave you, and it deleted your current generations? What would you do then?
