Did we break AlienBob's taper mirror?

Odd, I just went to get slackpkg+ working on my other box and now I can't get through to for all of AlienBob's stuff. I try to do a traceroute and it dies before getting there. Did we kill his server already?

Yes, it seems like the server is hammered hard. It is a simple virtual machine which is well capable of providing sustained 100 Mbit rsync download bandwidth. But it seems that everybody is using slackpkg+ to get updated from what I see in the Apache log. Too many http connections have starved the server's memory twice today and I had to forcibly reset the virtual machine on those occasions, it would not respond to console login attempts even.

Well played, sir.

Sorry about all the traffic, Eric. This is why we can't have anything nice

A broken mirror? Seven years bad luck, so they say.
