Well this sounds very accusatory. Neither case is correct, and perhaps 
Alexander you could ask me directly and wait for my response before 
jumping to conclusions.

I did this because I thought that 'ftp.linuxfromscratch.org' was 
supposed to be the official name to use. After all, why have RR DNS 
setup if not to distribute among several participating mirrors? I didn't 
realize that we had some very unreliable mirrors participating. Seeing 
that this is the case, perhaps it would be wise to drop RR DNS entirely.

I have no problems with ftp.lfs-matrix.net being the default considering 
the trouble with other mirrors and that Justin, the admin, is happy with 
it being set that way. Feel free to change it back.

And again, next time, could you *please* talk to me instead of getting 
all up in arms and accusatory?
