mirror trouble?

Looks like rsync://, listed in, keeps reverting between thunderbird 31 and 24 for Salckware 14.1 64. Just a heads-up.

There's a reason you see this in the mirror listing:
If you use as opposed to, you'll get redirected to one of the four numbered mirrors (I don't know if it's location-driven or what, but that part's irrelevant for our purposes), and they're not always in sync with each other (syncing takes time).
