Re: need sd card backup on r-pi-3b

I was just thinking of how waiting for wifi to connect hangs my pis
booting.  Times out at 1 minute 20 seconds or so.  If the interface
was supposed to be connected to the router to be considered to be up
that could be a problem.

lo is loopback,, always points to the machine you're on.
Won't help in this case.  Has its uses though.  Even windows95 had
traceroute, jeez.
