Didn't know about it. Connection refused.

you mean mirror.aarnet.edu.au ;)

I hadn't been there before, happy to know about it. The Mandrake page
should list this mirror, unless it's not public. Hmmm.. Knoppix 3.2...

AARNet is cheaper from a University than non-AARNet, but it's not free
as in beer. Whereas mirroring it on campus would be free except for the
effort required of doing it.

I'm talking to people about getting a mirror over here at Laser Physics.
Probably won't be public though, maybe campus-wide since that doesn't
cost us any bandwidth.
