Linux Mint distro had DOSed itself by releasing a too-popular edition.“Our main repository packages.linuxmint.com isnâ€™t currently able to serve connections to everybody. This can result in errors, timeouts and delays in apt-get, and in your update manager.Please switch to a mirror while we fix this situation” I guess that’s the price of fame and hard work, you get more fame and more hard work to do. Let’s hope they can scale up. The hits on Distrowatch should have been a clue but it’s better late than never to add servers.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
