[clug] Aarnet Ubuntu mirror back online

Yesterday I couldn't get any sense out of apt-get
 until I purged the Aarnet mirrors out of the sources list.

Browsing to the URL    http://au.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
 from sources.list, was giving me timeouts and page not found errors.

But Aarnet featured prominently among the Australian mirrors
 on    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archivemirrors

Today the situation is reversed, Aarnet works again, but isn't mentioned on Launchpad.

Is the Aarnet mirror still maintained enough to be trusted?
