FWIW, thanks for implementing a great idea :) This might be specially
useful for laptop users who often connect from different countries :)
The implementation also gives me some strange results: From my
workstation, in the 132.248. class-B, I get:
cdn.debian.net is an alias for deb.cdn.araki.net.
deb.cdn.araki.net has address 18.104.22.168
deb.cdn.araki.net has address 22.214.171.124
deb.cdn.araki.net has address 126.96.36.199
But my closest mirror is (unsurprisingly!) 188.8.131.52
(ftp.mx.debian.org - on a 100Mbps link from here ;-) )
