I apologise. Sometimes I fail to think of Frugalware's reputation and
this was one of those occasions. I was perhaps still in "newsletter"

I guess I was thinking "If mirrors A, B and C are no longer active,
perhaps they should be removed from the mirrors list". Personally I
haven't had any trouble in downloading packages, just a slight delay
while it tries those which are not current. Of course I can remove
these from my the mirrors list on my PC, and probably will do shortly.
You're welcome, but I'm not sure why you're thanking me. :( As I
said above, I'll be more careful with public email messages in future.
May you always be Frugal,
