[CentOS-mirror] msync-dvd gone missing?

Hey all,

Got an e-mail this morning from someone who happened to notice that my
Centos tree was a bit out of date.  Doing some digging it looks like the
remote server just isn't answering anymore:

Wed Feb 24 13:43:01 UTC 2010

rsync: failed to connect to centosk3.centos.org: Connection timed out (110)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(124)

--- END RSYNC ---
Wed Feb 24 13:46:10 UTC 2010

However I'm not explicitly connecting to centosk3 I'm using
msync-dvd.centos.org, which in turns seems to resolve as follows:

# nslookup msync-dvd.centos.org

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:	msync-dvd.centos.org

The issue seems to have started on or around Sat Feb 20 05:43:01 UTC
2010 as that's the first sync recently that started failing to connect.

This may have already been fixed though as literally the rsync that
happened in the middle of writing this seems to have changed to z3
instead of k3 and that went through.  Just a heads up in that case.
