Also in this case one picture worths 1000 words, Rob keeps doing a

By the way we're about to provide an easier way to detect when a day

It's good to see we find a way to use both mirror networks. Beyond the
big numbers at stake, I think it we were right by setting a clear rule
about who serves which downloads (AOO 3.4, legacy). Doing so actually
we eliminated all potential problems with "which mirror network is
having a problem" kinds of debugging.  Talking about which, let me
state that so far we didn't experience any issue, people reported an
average time of downloading of about 2 mins that's pretty good.
