    Duke mirror down?

    For some time I've used the Duke University Ubuntu Mirror. I started because I have having trouble with US ubuntu servers performance. Those problems have been long resolved but I've never changed back. Starting Tuesday I'm getting errors updating from the Duke mirror. Is anyone aware of any problem with it? Other machines pointed at other mirrors or at

    http://archive.linux.duke.edu/ubuntu seems to be working from here. I used lynx:

    I would try the "select best server" button. It will find the fastest connection that's available at the moment.

    Thanks,

    It's weird I can't get it at all, maybe a DNS problem?

    Code:
    This site can’t be reached
    archive.linux.duke.edu took too long to respond.
    
    Try:
    
    Checking the connection
    Checking the proxy and the firewall
    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT
    I'll switch to another mirror.

    Switched to another mirror. I'll mark this solved.
    Thanks again.
    I now just need to check my other Ubuntu computers to see if they are using the Duke mirror.
