No apologies necessary. The mirror services have been restored.
I apologise for the incendiery tone of my original email; I was pretty
upset. Mr. Lapeyre and I have continued to correspond via private mail
and I feel we've got everything worked out.
An important point to consider in this particualr case: The PTR record
for "22.214.171.124" resolves to "pavlov.midco.net" rather than
"debian.midco.net" which would certainly be more obvious in most cases.
Unfortunately, there are issues with changing the PTR record to a more
"correct" value, as the machine has other responsibilities.
My co-workers and I are plannig to purchase a new system board,
processor and case which along with some hardware donations ( :) ) will
become "debian.midco.net", leaving pavlov to his more mundane tasks.
This should prove beneficial to both the project and Midcontinent. (If
anyone wants to contribute something, let me know. I think we've got it
