Oh, I didn't know. sorry for my ignorance for the hacky suggestion.

In fact, I had been looking into the package caching solutions, namely,
apt-proxy, apt-cacher and approx, but haven't figure out which one is the
easiest to install/config, and suit a home-linux system. 

Is the following all it takes for approx to work?

apt-get install approx
echo 'debian      http://ftp.at.debian.org/debian' >>/etc/approx/approx.conf
Restart approx

Are there any more configurations? Do I need to configure apt-get to use
approx? Can anyone list all your tweaks, and post all your tweaked approx
related configuration files please?

Thanks a lot.
