Fortunately, I had another copy on my phone...

This is just an amusing anecdote.

I was trying to download and install Reuben Thomas' stdlib. However, I'd been having problems actually downloading the file from LuaForge.

However, since I had set up the same Lua development environment on my Android phone, and I had previously installed stdlib release 12 on that, I was able to just scp over the tar archive to my laptop.

I'm still trying to remember how we all got by the the dark ages before we had the Internet. And phones that have gigabytes of storage. Seriously, what did I do before wireless LAN was widely available?
