And there I was, thinking there was something wrong with my
recently-upgraded machine! Being a lazy dev, I just added a cron job to
apt-get update on the hour... So I get hourly checks, as per the original

skull. He therefore approaches his task with full humility, and avoids
clever tricks like the plague.
