Okay, clearly I need to read this list more (grin).  I've been somewhat
reluctant to go and complain too much to the isp...but I guess I'll have to
change that.

So, let's come up with a "benchmark" for access times to the machine.  Then
someone can run a little program somewhere on the internet and e-mail me
each time the access time becomes too slow; I can collate this information,
and we can get more bandwith.

Anyone know what the benchmark should be?  Maybe we need a minimum benchmark
that it can never get under, and then another benchmark that va.debian.org
should be performing at over 80% of the time?
