If your trouble were specifically to us I think I know what probably
caused them :-)

Yesterday, as you probably know, RedHat 6.0 was released. RedHat ran
into trouble with their ftp site (again!), and we ended up being the
one that most of the other mirrorsites mirrored from. At the same
time we had almost 300 normal users downloading it. We had an average
upstream of ~17Mb :-))

This actually caused trouble for a router on the danish research
backbone network. Our big Sun ES3500 was not even sweating, but the
research net backbone almost came to a halt :-)

Have you tried again today ? The problems seems to have been fixed.

Haha :-) I am the lucky and happy owner of a 3Mbit cable modem :-)

Hehe. I don't have a zip drive, but I guess I would be able to find
someone with one.

But lets hope your ISP connection gets better.

Michele> Michele (Mike, Michael - a male name)

I known. I spent last summer at CERN where one of my friends was an
italian guy also named Michele. Funny thing with these names :-)
