I give up. I try to read as much as fast as I can to fill in my admitted
newness to this stuff. I know I can custom build repos lists, etc. I use
fastest mirror plugin and I use your mirror list. If there is a way for
me to use the *standard* issued stuff and just add a single line that
says augment that with local stuff first and then use (or don't use the
standard stuff) if that fails, I missed it.

As Lance pointed out, this is OT here anyway, so I was done.

As I pointed out, it was no concern to me.
