I have never used a mirror at home for Linux stuff as my budget 
dial-up service is too slow to download much of anything.  If I 
someday upgrade to the non-budget dial-up I probably would.
The advantage of a site which mirrors is that it is sort of one
stop shopping.

If there is a cost involved, could we and LUGOD go together 
on a single mirror site with links from each groups web site?
