These servers appear to be very unreliable, at least when accessing from 
outside the USA.  There is an alternative at:


but its file:


is from last March, and is now stale.  The other two sites haven't come

For such an important file, I expect there are mirrors in Asia and 
Europe - it's just that I haven't found them as yet.
