Any suggested URLs explaining generally how to go about finding "regional" mirrors? Does region generally refer to a continent? Country? Other?

Open in a browser, for example:

<http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/oss/>

Hit the "details" link of any file. That's the info that mirrorbrains provides, and you can see the list of available mirrors, by country, continent, and worldwide.

By the way: if a download doesn't work, it is not mirrorbrain fault, but zypper or yast. Those programs have enough info to select a mirror, or several. If one fails, select another one, automatically, till it works. They can create a local black/white list of mirror server to use / not to use.
