well my friend in Sydney got a bpa cable modem. I know there is quite a few linux users on the bpa networks. I also know bpa provides internally such software as netscape and other crap downloads for windows users. I don't know why linux bpa users haven't requested that Bigpond creates mirrors inside their network for distros they use. It only takes 2 harddrives(~160 gig) and a machine. It keeps their Linux users from downloading via ftp again and again and again at the hefty prices bigpond says it costs them.
Frankly I don't understand these stupid companies. They put in their service agreements that you can't run a server or a bot(? rsync) which automatically downloads stuff. But they won't provide an interal mirror?
well I downloaded the suse ftp tree over bpa modem and they haven't complained about the 6 gig or so (probably was more like 9 =). fsck 'em. Besides I don't see a difference in windows users downloading 6 gig of mp3s and Linux users pulling down 6 gigs of source simply because its more automated.

Except we still don't (at last check) have a mirror in either Australia or
New Zealand (where it use to be).Thailand or Taiwan are the nearest but the
UK has the best continuous throughput and as for the USA mirrors,
