FYI, distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr host around 4TB of various linux 
distribution, and 650GB (yes Bytes) is less than the _daily_ bandwidth allow 
for all anonymous users using ftp/http/rsync (rate limit at 65mbits/s, the 
university, know mirrors and friends get more).

I fully agree with John... The question is how can they trash all data w/o any 
warning before ? Woot, I hope they never did that on important data hard to 
recover !
