comment Make squid (or tinyproxy) return cache EVERYTHING and return hits on Internet outage
Perfect for my situation - I have a web scraper written in Python, so I use squid as proxy. Now I can rerun my script on historic data, without having to harass the web server with new requests. It's really quite a saver - it minimizes the traffic seen on the web server, and it makes testing tweaks to the parsing code locally much faster on my end. Since all the data is historic and from 2014 at the latest, there is no worry that I might be missing updates. Missing updates is good - I want the data as it was seen.

XtraBackup seems to work pretty well with MyIsam too, albeit a little slower.

@syneticon-dj ha, why? At this point I almost wish I was insane.

@Ladadadada, I figured, but if we were that good we would have actually made a server-slave setup from the beginning. :-)

Well, that only seems to work when you have specified a specific process or service. Not just any random process popping into existence.
