What's the current state of mirror.aarnet.edu.au?

Its CPAN archive got so badly out of date it broke CPAN completely.
I had to hand edit in a different mirror (good ol' mirror.kernel.org)
 and delete all my CPAN history and cache to get it working again.

At present I avoid it like the plague.


PS: An ISO is an ISO, if mirror.aarnet has the one you want
 and it checksums OK then use it, don't be put off by me.

Konqueror has gotten so clever for its own boots
  that it has forgotten what a web browser is for.
