Hello everybody (hello Dr. Neuro!),

just a quick missive to let you all know Jason finished his rsync in short
order, and we now have a full and up-to-date mirror of browsers.evolt.org at
planetmirror.com, parked on the Optus backbone in Australia.  The beo
backend has been updated, and planetmirror links to browsers now show up on
the download pages.  Hopefully this will help take more load from beo
itself, and draw some from deouk too, especially in Australia.

I believe that for some of those in .au with metered connections, transfers
made across the backbone which don't go to another carrier don't count
towards any traffic quota, so this is also rather cool for them :)
