University of Kent Computing

The UK Mirror Service provides a collection of mirrors of FTP, web and rsync sites of interest to academic users. The service is provided by the University of Kent's School Of Computing.

If there's anything you think could benefit from being mirrored on this site then please contact us. The site currently contains 17.8 TiB


Current list of linux softwares - missing ???? - PuppyLinux

http://www.mirrorservice.org/platforms/linux

My local Lug, KLUG has several Kent Uni people as members, so I'm sure someone would have a word in the right ear....

Suggestions as to how to take this further?/What needs mirroring, please?

[Shame I didn't know about this before Caneri's sites went down....]

Hi Aitch,
Barry posted this on his blog today

Quote:
It looks like we have a crisis situation with hosting of Wary and Quirky files.

I can only find one mirror of ibiblio.org that has Wary 5.1:

http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/quirky/

Over the last year or two, a few people have approached me offering hosting, but I have not taken up the offers as I was complacent, thinking that ibiblio.org is serving us well.

Yes, ibiblio is great, but the mirror sites are very selective in what they mirror. We need to lobby some of these mirrors to please add Wary/Quirky.

And/or, anyone who can add their site as a mirror of ibiblio and host Wary/Quirky, that would be great.

@Aitch

Good idea about the University of Kent for hosting Puppy.
Their sites are usually fast, well maintained and up-to-date. I often use them do download Linux stuff.

I hope they would regard Puppy, Wary Quirky as having sufficient academic credentials to justify Puppy's inclusion on their system.

Urgent! Could someone please make a Puppy logo where the canine is wearing a mortarboard? This might just help to create the correct impression of Puppy in the cloistered academic world. LOL

It is interesting to see what the University of Kent mirrors from Ibiblio at present:

ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/ibiblio.org/pub/

Damnsmall, Mepis and Vectorlinux.

How about providing examples like this one?

@Dewbie

Yeah, you'd think that Puppy would be of considerable use to students of all sorts of subjects who would find it a very handy tool for use in their assignments - it's not just computing students who could reap the benefit of some Puppy goodness in their academic lives.

edit:

Puppy had not yet been invented during my time with computing studies at Uni. I had to put up with slow daft old Windows NT/2000 at that time. Puppy would have really been an advantage to have had access to and would have made studying a lot more time-efficient as well as cost-effective.

PostPosted: Thu 24 Feb 2011, 19:24    Post_subject:  please explain a bit...  

Is this just a need of web space for the mirroring - or the work of making and keeping up the mirrors ?

What sort of bandwidth and space is it likely to consume ?

I ask because I offer hosting and would donate some to Puppy if it is a good fit...?
