Hi, I'm having frequent problems with one of the servers handling 
mirror.centos.org requests. The problematic server's IP address is Example below:

--- cut here ---
[root at seepra ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
  * base: mirror.nsc.liu.se
  * epel: www.nic.funet.fi
  * extras: mirror.nsc.liu.se
  * updates: mirror.nsc.liu.se
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/cr/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 
14] PYCURL ERROR 7 - "couldn't connect to host"
Trying other mirror.
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update

[root at seepra ~]# telnet mirror.centos.org 80
telnet: connect to address Connection timed out
--- cut here ---

This certainly isn't the first time that I'm seeing this particular 
server having some problems. I understand that this is likely a donated 
server (which is of course much appreciated), but I'm afraid that server 
isn't quite capable of handling all the tasks it should be doing.

Could something be done regarding that server? Thanks in advance.
