if your FTP is full, i would assume that most of the bandwidth is gone at
this point... how much does http help if the pipe (t1?) is already full?
I share tom's sentiments, and I have a fairly fast (500kbps) connection,
but kernel.org can hardly ever provide me with download speeds above
20kb/sec, most times not above 15 (I can get around 40kb/sec from fast
mirrors.) I scoured kernel.org for a long time trying to find ANY sort of
list of people who might mirror the site. Eventually I just gave up and
waited for ftpsearch.ntnu.no to find someone who had a copy of the kernel.
Even though theres not a solid mirroring structure out there yet- do you
have any sort of idea of some sites that keep a fairly curent mirror?
