Thanks for the reminder Jess!

During the Decapod trip to Nigeria, our installation scripts failed because
we needed to download all our packages over the Internet. What typically
was a 15 minute installation turned into several hours (or days if you
factor in the time spent diagnosing failed packages and trying to run the
install in pieces).

We ended up having to run the installation scripts overnight when traffic
was low and the connection was more reliable.

Justin spent a lot of time in that server room. At least it was air
conditioned. :)

- Jon.
