Well I too am 'very' frustrated with sup.netbsd.org. BUT the
unimaginable has happened I actually have a connection to
sup.netbsd.org running at the moment....
BUT it's been running for over 15 hours and it's
only half way through.... (well it's at sys/arch/atari at the moment.)
If and only if it lasts (for the next 12 hours.), then
I'll be uptodate (with a lag for 26 hours.) to current by
tomorrow 8.00. Note that until supscan has run it won't
help connecting earlier, also note my 'hostbase' is /mit/ftp/pub/NetBSD
and NOT /a/anon_ftp etc.
PS I will put 'YES' in /etc/ftpwelcome when it works so
don't waste time before then.
PS2 For some reason everything has a timestamp of Sep.30 or
later on sup.netbsd.org (maybe that was the crashed disk.)
The cost of living hasn't affected it's popularity. (unknown)
