We're now living in a post-infinity society, and that makes me sad. RIP Adam.

Upgrading my Pixel to Android 12 beta at 10:15pm. What could possibly go wrong?

Of course, you can also use mirror+https or mirror+http and place the file on your server, e.g.

mirror+http:/ /mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt

(without the space)

Does geolocation and configures your apt to use the local mirrors.

Create a file /etc/apt/mirrors.list containing URLs to Debian repositories, and then replace "deb.debian.org/debian" or "archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu" in sources.list with mirror+file:/etc/apt/mirrors.list.

Or put the file on your webserver and do geo location or whatever :D

Did you know that APT can download from multiple mirrors in parallel, and fallback? You just need to use apt-transport-mirror!

Yes, I know, I'm using French ubuntu mirror in Germany. Finding a mirror with decent peering on both Deutsche Glasfaser and Vodafone West is hard.

Google needs like a gmail crontab thingy. Such that you can specify filters that are run regularly and then delete like certain old emails.

The problem when you're tired in the morning but need to keep 1-2 hours between breakfast and tea as it messes up nutrition intake.

apt 2.3.7 adds exponential backoff to retries. So if a download fails, we'll retry it after 1s; if that fails, another 2s, and if that fails, another 4s. Then we give up, unless you set a higher limit of retries :)

The maximum delay between retries is set to 30s.

The maximum delay of an apt run due to backoff is roughly 2**max-retries-1 seconds, by default 7s; that's for max-retries < 5, afterwards the 30s limit comes into effect and it's 2**4+30*(max-retries-5).

Currently the INBOXes just grow to a couple thousand and then everything older than a month gets mass-archived at some point; and the rest manually processed.

The top of the range Mi and Redmi devices get 3 years of security updates, quarterly. In practice, updates might come more often, though, but it's variable.

If you want to buy Xiaomi phones, do yourself a favour, and pick one of the Android Enterprise Recommended models which all come with an update guarantee.

Dune (84) was a truly awful movie. Wondering how the new one will fare. Might have missed 20% hanging out on asocial media

While we're at it, mosh had no releases in 4 years, is there a maintained replacement?

I don't know why it tries to reconnect via SSH, shouldn't it have the key to connect via UDP directly?

mosh is a mess. Every once in a while it loses connection.

Then it tries to reconnect, triggers the firewall connection limit and locks me out from my VPS. Hooray!
