Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?

A better world through a better Internet
Im looking for someone to give some architectural advise on setting up VRFs
on a Mikrotik for separating out BGP routing table functionally.
Local BGP Peers / Local IX's > Local VRF
National Transit BGP Peers > National VRF
International Transit BGP Peers > International VRF
Then leaking those routes into other VRFs, for example a customer transit
VRF containing routes from all three.
Is there anyone other there who has done this on a Mikrotik (preferably in
production) that might be interested in providing some architectural advise
/ initial configuration help?

AS17746 is no longer aggregating any of the ex-Orcon IPv4 or Ipv6 subnets. These have been moved to AS9790.
Its made our IPV6 uptake stats look a little sad, but that's just how it is.
17746 is still in the AS path for some routes, but the goal is for that to change overtime.
Any issues encountered, please sing out
