I'm on the HDWA network which connects to the Tellyscum link. This was
not a problem for accessing the whole aarnet site until the release of
the second Phantom Menace preview. Apparently there were too many
outside oz dl's happening.

Since about that time, the only way to access the aarnet mirror (and
hence, one of the SAMBA mirrors) is to be on an ISP who connects to
OPTUS link is OK.

I reckon you are prolly in same boat Kevin.

A case of "Too bad, so sad."

Cheers, Damion.
