Yes, I found those servers yesterday while investigating this issue. 
However, they are StratumOne servers and so even though HP pays for them, it 
is against the 'Rules of Engagement' for even HP's end clients to use them. 
I guess one way to fix the issue would be to move them into the StratumTwo 
pool, but I don't want to suggest that because that would remove them from 
the StratumOne pool, which is probably a more critical service to the 
community in the overall scheme of things.
