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?
Yes, it is on the other side of the world. On the other hand, if
the DNS is your obsessive passion, this is the best venue around that
will allow you to share your interest with other like minded geeks. :-)

I'm a French student at CentraleSupélec school
(http://www.centralesupelec.fr/en). I'm currently doing a gap year
before starting my last student year (master's degree) in IT security
and I've nearly finished the first 6 months of this gap year as a
software developer on the VLC media player. I'm now looking for a
6-month internship abroad (thus out of France) during the first semester
of 2018. I'm free from mid-january to end of august 2018 and willing to
improve my skills as a network manager and/or network security so I'm
asking here if anyone has an internship as Network Engineer or Network
Admin available for that period.
I've been invested in IT and new technologies for around a decade and I
really got involved into networks management when I took in charge my
school's campus network (200+ users). That gave me the opportunity to
learn a lot about the technologies involved from Linux systems, to
routing equipment, from OSI layers to various protocols while dealing
with daily maintenance of the systems and users problems.
I fluently speaks French and English and know basics of Spanish too. I'm
open for jobs at any location.
For more about my profile and my projects or any question, feel free to
check out my web site at https://www.maelkervella.eu or contact me off
the list at mk(a)maelkervella.eu.
