comment Why do mobile networks have high latencies? How can they be reduced?
Interesting point. However, this explains only part of the problem. GPRS typically has latencies of 500-1,000ms. Latency across a continent, is typically not more than 200-300ms, so even very wasteful routing should not give you 1,000 ms.

comment Why couldn't MAC addresses be used instead of IPv4|6 for networking?
@Dorus: Your comment does not make sense. PPP nodes can have both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, precisely becauses IP builds on the underlying protocols, such as Ethernet or PPP. However, PPP nodes do not have a MAC address (because the PPP standard does not have them).

comment Subversion behind router
The simplest solution would be to use local version control. You can put an SVN repo on a USB stick (it's just a folder). Or go all the way and use distributed version control, then you can even have multiple repos.

After discussion on meta, I tried to make the question more concrete, in the hopes that it may become on-topic.

Well, seeing the question was closed as "off-topic" without comment, I reposted on SU: superuser.com/questions/422601/…

Oh, I see the question has already attracted 3 close votes. Should I move it to superuser.com?

@ceejayoz: Yes, I realize this may be borderline off-topic. Still, it is a networking question - and runningamajortelecom.stackexchange.com is still in private beta ;-).

comment Are there any good reasons for disabling hardware-assisted virtualization?
-1 The question is not about systems where HV is completely unavailable in the BIOS. It's about why it is shipped disabled, even though it's available.

comment Is there any any merit to routinely restore a linux system, even if unnecessary?
Yes, and additionally, returning to a base snapshot will may also wipe data that is still needed, such as logfiles, temporary files or result data. You could store this on a different partitions, but it still means extra work (and risk).
