I suppose trying later wouldn't help, because I haven't been able to FTP
to netbsd.org for a long time. Not sure when it actually broke for me...
Most likely when I moved a month ago, so that'd make me think the
problem really is the uni's firewall (hmm, as good a reason as any to
flame them... soon enough they'll be blocking all incoming connections
to the student's home computers).
And ftp.sunet.se and (in particular) ftp.funet.fi seem a bit slow on
the uptake. Also, it seems funet has ditched NetBSD
(/pub/NetBSD: No such file or directory).
