A few more suggestions:

* Move the bittorrent link up to the top, giving it more attention.

* Leave ftp.dragonflybsd.org off of the mirror list initially... if slashdot does a front page post, your connection will be busy enough handling page views, having people trying to download off of you won't help. (Let the mirrors take the downloading stress, instead of your T1. Even if your mirror is listed at the end, the typical ./'er will decide to get it from the 'official' source, instead of the mirror links.)

* post the md5 somewhere (this would have been nice for the mirrors last night too ;)

I've a list of the MD5s of all ISOs in my repository at dragonfly.The-BOFH.org.

We do definitely need to think about how to handle and organize mirrors -- it was virtually impossible to download the 1.0REL from Matt's server last night, and I know that with all 15 mirrors we have, that I still should have gotten more than 4KB/s. :P No matter, we've got it now and we're -RELEASE!

Time to party, gentlemen.
