With stable security updates, I'm not so worried. Still, Lubos has
a point. This is what should be in crontab:
#apt-get update && apt-get -y -d upgrade
This only *downloads* the necessary files. Then, you manually
upgrade, and apt uses the files that you downloaded the previous night.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
