I've had it with apt-cacher

I thought apt-cacher was an improvement on apt-proxy. Boy was I wrong. It's been giving me a lot of headaches. Whereas apt-proxy needed the odd restart, apt-cacher needs files to be deleted from it's cache every now and then...

What a pain.

Now I've switched back to apt-proxy, and with a bit of squid tweaking (so that local network traffic isn't cached, or passed to the SAIX proxy) everything is working well again.
