One of those is down.  Permanently??  I have in the past found the University 
of Kent mirror rather unreliable, but I had in fact already decided to give 
the one that is up (kuiper) a chance.  Just pinging mirrorservice.org was 
slower than pinging dotriver.eu.  But kuiper.mirrorservice.org was noticably 
quicker.  Kent being inconsistent or a real difference?

A pity you couldn't comment earlier.  And if you knew that the two Kent ones 
were in Kent, you could have said so, especially if you consider them capably 
administered - something I was specifically asking about.  You have been 
unwilling to give a recommendation, so I had to use a pin.  

I like France, and its infrastructure, which is far better and more reliable 
than ours, so I chose France.  Especially as it was suggested by Slávek and I 
have always found Slávek's advice extremely reliable.  

Apparently the pin was not successful.  That was why I asked in the first 
place.
