I seem to have a problem connecting to to update my sources.
Both sup and ftp from my system to there end up timing out or worse.

421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection.

It worked OK last Sunday (11/9), but didn't yesterday.  I can ftp to other
systems (, for one) and telnet to and
works just fine.  I ended up yesterday ftp'ing the tarballs to
and from there to my machine.  I've done a build from those tarballs and
the problem still exists.

Am I the only one suffering these problems?  Is there anything I can
do to alleviate them?
