comment Input encoding error after upgrading from Biber 1.9 to Biber 2.1
Well, just so whomever made that call knows I just wasted about an hour combing through my .bib file for non-unicode characters, converting it into hex and looking for cc81 until someone finally showed me \DeclareUnicodeCharacter{0301}{HERE}. So thanks for making biber generate unsafe output for pdflatex by default. Wouldn't that be better as the non-default option?

Ah, so we'd need to ask the TeX Live people for that.

Country based? THAT explains a lot. There are only a few Canadian mirrors, and at least one is on the far side of the continent from me.

comment Automatically find fastest CTAN mirror
@cfr Is it supposed to pick a close one? It could be I was just close to a slow one at the time. It is odd though: I was a 40 minute drive from UWaterloo at the time, hard to think another would be closer.

@cfr Because when I was near a university and manually specified a mirror it would go from 2 hours to download a new TeX Live install to under half an hour. Why would I use some random mirror located half a planet away?

comment Automatically find fastest CTAN mirror
@HenriMenke TeXLive Manager will give me a list of mirrors, but I can only guess where they are physically located (which worked fine when I lived down the road from a uni hosting one of them, but now that I'm 4500 km away I get much slower rates from that mirror)

@HenriMenke Wouldn't the fact that is on a different continent from me slow things down some?
