Updates broke Ubuntu 9.10 AGAIN!

I just downloaded the most recent version of the updates for Ubuntu 9.10 and for the 4th or 5th time since I've used 9.10 it's broken 9.10 so I can't boot. Usually after breaking it it just hangs at the screen between the big white ubuntu O and the next with the progress bar, this time after the big white O I get random multicolored characters at the top of the screen and the computer hangs with no activity, no hdd lights or anything. Unless anyone has any suggestions I'm just not going to use Ubuntu, at least until 10.04 is available this is really getting old.
