Well, what is interesting is that there are rumors that lots of
canadians are using ftp2.usa for OpenBSD in our colo.

We have been trying to get a NetBSD mirror up and running for a long
while. . . maybe we'll be successful soon.  No, it's a question of
hardware, not technical prowess. . .

I would like to see this FBSD mirror do some archiving. . . I mean,
something like ftp-archive.. . . it's got plenty of space, right Petee?
