Me thinks that doesn't work.
fastest mirror give me the lowest values for .tw sites. Which, I think
mean the fastest. They are in fact, the slowest. Here are some real numbers:
base 856 kb 27:38
updates 91 kb 1:20
kernel-devel died after 52:01
At this point several mirrors were tried finally a fast one was found
and things went quickly and smoothly.
Almost one hour and only 1.7 of 4.8 m was downloaded
This is typical for me getting data from .tw sites.
