I am excited to announce that Mines is now hosting Ubuntu mirrors on
campus! This should increase the download speeds of `apt` on and around
campus. It should work on all currently supported versions of Ubuntu.
To use the new mirrors:
1. Make a backup of your current sources list:
`cp /etc/apt/sources.list ~/some/safe/place/sources.bak`
You can then use that file to restore the default mirrors if you decide
not to use Mines mirrors in the future.
2. Edit `/etc/apt/sources.list` and on the lines not starting with a
'#', replace anything that looks like us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu or
us.security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu (might look slightly different depending
on your version) with lug.mines.edu/mirrors/ubuntu
Run `apt update`, and you should see it updating from `lug.mines.edu`.
Please email me or ping me on the LUG Matrix server if you have any
questions or issues setting it up.
(Bonus, you can also do the same process on the Windows Subsystem for
