Alternate Mozilla 0.9.9 Download Locations

Interest in 0.9.9 has been so great that we overwhelmed the 100 Mbit full duplex link from ftp.mozilla.org with heavy traffic." Because of this, mozilla.org and Netscape have set up a new set of servers (http, ftp) to handle the load. Also, you can check the mirrors list for servers closer to you.

I stopped using Imperial College's mirror site quite a while ago - <ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk> is now the de facto UK mirror site (not just for Mozilla/Netscape) as far as I'm concerned. Strange, though, how the ".uk" section of the mirrors list has <ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk> down *twice* (albeit one path slightly deeper than the other) ! Shume mishtake shurely ? :-)
