After you install Alpine, you may be wondering how do I figure out the fastest mirror again?

Contents of /home/user/fastestmirror

mkdir ~/.tmp wget -q -O ~/.tmp/MIRRORS.txt L=$(cat /tmp/MIRRORS.txt) data="" for s in $L; do t=$(time -f "%E" wget -q $s/MIRRORS.txt -O ~/.tmp/MIRRORS.txt 2>&1) echo "$s was $t" data="$data$t $s\n" done echo "===RESULTS===" echo -e $data | sort
