Part of my problem is that my own connection is absolutely terrible.

Anyway, I'll figure something out.  What I'll probably end up doing is
taking my laptop home and rsycing a mirror to it, then taking it back into
work and shooting that over to my server.

Though just for giggles I'm going to try to get central IT to unblock rsync
for me :-)
