I sincerely apologize for the difficulties that you are experiencing.  As
a result of the recent donations by certain individuals, I have been able
to send a hard disk with the entire TDE archive contents to the new
primary mirror.  When he receives this disk he will publish its contents
to the mirror, at which point full service will be restored.

I will post back with an estimated delay as soon as I have this information.

Once again I apologize for the delays; please remember that TDE is a
volunteer-based project that also relies on support both financially and
via donated mirror bandwidth.  We were not informed of the impending
mirror failure until AFTER the mirror was taken offline, forcing a full
reload of ~130GB of data to the new mirror system.  That is a lot of data
by U.S. Internet standards.
