This is strange... It is most likely that nws.net was down for a period (it
seems to be doing that a lot lately). I have not experienced any loss of
connectivity recently. The box is also called 'valinor.ssd.k12.wa.us' - a
more 'proper' name, or I usually tell people
valinor.nws.net because it's shortest.

38mb right now, including somebody's X debs (forgot who built
them). You're welcome to mirror it; tell me if there's some sort of daemon
you would like installed to make that easier.
