Mine wasn't that fast, 10 am to 11:53, unless I missed an update playing 
with something else. I have found that amanda has grown a facility to 
initiate a backup on demand from the client when a machine comes online 
from being shut down for the night, so I am contemplating doing that to 
my latest cnc machine build, which will be run by a Raspberry-Pi 3b. 
That, fits in your shirt pocket SBC, has way more than enough cpu to run 
a time critical job, some parts of which take sub-millisecond response 
times to run well. It has a 4 core, 64 bit cpu in it.

And then, while I'm typing this, it now says 12:53, so thats an hour 
between the last 2 "snapshots".

That is so NOT a problem.  I just like to know who I am typing at/to. :)
