There are lots of reasons why pings can fail which is why I wrote
"Technically there are lots of caveats with that but in practice it
works out pretty well."  Ping has found you a good mirror - kuiper
I believe.  However it does not mean that we can conclude that
copernicus has a problem. is currently responding to ping, http,
and rsync.  I monitor all the recommended mirrors as does Tim's

Directly accessing a mirror is a workaround, not a solution, because
it doesn't always give you up to date information.  The redirector
is recommended because, when it is up, it jumps through hoops to get
you the up to date information, and without overloading Tim's link when
that can be avoided.

It seems that moving the redirector out to a first class data center
would be a valuable step when Tim can find the time to do that for us.
