is it just me, or is archive.ubuntu.com extremely slow due to the number of users downloading jaunty?

If your ISP is p2p-friendly:

update: apt-p2p

install: get a torrent

Help 'em out, folks! Torrent it! Their hosting bills for this month are bad enough already.

You can change your repositories over to another country. Usually when I update I use the Italian repositories because they are getting hit less hard.

If that doesn't help (it probably won't), just choose a different mirror for your ubuntu repositories. there's tons out there.
