that's not something i see very often. :)

I use Debian/GNU Linux version 3.0;

Looking to AUTOMATE APT-GET UPGRADES? Don't! Sooner or later
there will be configuration questions, or dependency conflicts!
You can DOWNLOAD (and not actually install) the latest and
greatest automatically, though, with a crontab command such as
	apt-get update && apt-get upgrade --download-only
This updates and downloads in /var/cache/apt/archives, but does
not install packages until requested manually.  Later, when
it's convenient, do the actual install, by hand:
	apt-get upgrade
See "man apt-get" and "man crontab".
