	Indeed the mirrors are not working because the Brazilian
	mirror had a disk crash (the mirror is one of the computers
	at the Physics Institute of USP and they've been having
	problems with their power plant and now that it is solved,
	with bureaucracy).

	And it appears that it won't be usable any time soon. :-(

	I've been using the US mirrors. Since http.us.debian.org is
	not just one machine (half a dozen or so), if you have
	problems downloading from the site (like slow connection),
	just disconnect and try again. apt will probably use another

	That said, sometimes I've had better luck with the us.debian
	sites than with br.debian when it was operational.
