That's mostly my fault. I had requested that server down in SEA but did not
resume my activities. Otherwise, I would've been building stuff all
the time with
the sub-100ms latencies, which is real-time now compared to the
2-300ms I get on Soyuz.

But I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who benefits.

I also use(d) the build server non-interactively with scripts for pushing and
queuing packages for builds, pulling them, signing and releasing.
I intend(ed) to do the same on sgp, although I was more excited to
stay logged in.
