Yup. . .for some reason *every* mirror is complete crap tonight, 
including Pair's mirror. . . Only the master site is giving me 
anything. . .I usually use CrimeLabs.net, but they're no better.

I don't know how, but after I built my Soekris kernel, my kernel went, 
even though I didn't overwrite my boxes kernel.  I think it might have 
been the hdd flaking out. . .it may not have been seated right.

So now I need to rebuilld.

BTW, I'm doing a very slow and clear howto with OBSD 3.5 and Soekris, 
that I'll add to the library.
