I've been toying with the idea of setting up a complete local mirror for
all of my machines here. It wouldn't be public (at least not yet), but it
would cut down on my network traffic, and it would cut down on the debian
servers that are being pummelled right now.
I plan on having Debian on at least 4 machines (I've already got it on 3),
probably on the 4th by the end of the day.
I suggest you install squid on one of your boxes and point apt-get
there... squid will cache the packages from the first download, and
they'll be fast for the subsequent ones. Its hardly worth using 10 Gb for
a couple machines to get packages faster.
