Guys ... I apologize, but our mirrors are just absolutely maxed out.  

We have served 2.26 TB (bytes not bits) in the last 24 hours ... which
is 5x our normal traffic.

We are working on a way to use mirrorlist= so that we don't have this
kind of problem in the future.  (I know this has it's own issues, but it
is something we need to do)

We also need more donated mirrors ... if you are an ISP who is making
tons of money using CentOS, we could use a dedicated server donation :)

There is a list of public, external mirrors that have CentOS as well ...
it is available here that might not have as much traffic:

http://www.centos.org/mirrors/

Otherwise, to use mirror.centos.org, the only possibility is to wait a
day or so more.
