Nice. It is working great for me too and Portland isn't too far from me.
Do you have a mirror for security.ubuntu.com also?
Here's another thing: I originally installed Edgy (6.10RC). It took a while
before I noticed, but all the entries in the sources.list referred to
dapper. In addition to switching to the mirror, I also changed dapper to
edgy. I now have 762 upgradable packages. Have people found it safe to
execute such a large upgrade? If I copy /usr and /etc to a spare
partition, will I get back to where I started if I copy them back after an
unsuccessful attempt to upgrade?
