Thanks, Jeroen.  It's not a big thing, but there may have been a
problem you were not aware of at the LFS-ranch.  07:00 is a
pretty quiet time in the UK for internet traffic, so it may well
be the time one of the companies in the ISP's chain take capacity
out for maintenance.  Strange that other US/CAN sites (e.g.
freshmeat.net, tldp.org) were not affected.  I'll just keep tabs
on it for a bit.

Cheers, Richard
