Me too, and I live in the middle of Europe, without such problems as a
SSL-blocking Golden Shield or abysmal international links.

Despite many fast mirrors nearby, deb.debian.org almost always connects me
to a server in the US (I got NL just once).  Tried from three ISPs.

So if this CDN has problems in France and Poland, I don't see it working
right in China, Iran or Cuba.

A MAP07 (Dead Simple) raspberry tincture recipe: 0.5l 95% alcohol, 1kg
raspberries, 0.4kg sugar; put into a big jar for 1 month.  Filter out and
throw away the fruits (can dump them into a cake, etc), let the drink age
at least 3-6 months.
