Unfortunately, one of the two main download servers (an experimental
fibre channel one) bit the dust a couple of weeks ago.
SourceForge downloads now come only from ftp2.sourceforge.net. ftp1 and
ftp3 are coming online in the next couple of weeks. ftp1 is the replacement
for the blown up server, and ftp3 is entirely new. Hopefully there will
be an ftp4 and ftp5 soon.
With ftp3, SourceForge will push more bandwidth than cdrom.com or
freesoftware.com. It is already the largest free software
archive in the world by a pretty wide margin with 800GB of data and
over 3 million files.
I know it is crippled for a little while, and for that I apologize.
Should be fixed soon.
