Hi Neuro,

OK I've downloaded the browser archive, ~14 gigs over http, to tron from:


The files are on tron in the directory:


Having mirrored these with wget, there are index.html files for each 
directory which are clearly www.mirrorservice.org's site design, but i 
hope this will allow us to get BEO back up and running.

The lastupdated.txt file says: 2009-07-15 11:09:20 CDT

I hope we didn't have lose any changes we'd made since then...

Can you help me sort out what to delete from these files, and where to 
put the rest?
