You can mirror ftp.microworld.net if you want we are planning to DNS that 
to ftp2.debian.org.

By the way I should be back online in the next 24/48hours at full 
capacity again.

We upgrade RAM from 48megs to 64megs and reconfigured the drive structure

The question of the existence of views in the absence of anyone to hold

existence of the reader is left as an exercise for the second god
