Date: 6 Aug 92 17:37:33 GMT

As of Friday, August 14th, I will be shutting down the anonymous FTP server on
banjo.concert.net.   I have run out of disk space, and can't afford to keep
the archives.  

I am sure that the system is being mirrored somewhere (right?) so all is not
lost.  

Here is my ftp MOTD:

230-          ***** NOTICE ****** ***** NOTICE ****** ***** NOTICE ******
230-
230-AS OF FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, the anonymous FTP service available on banjo will
230-be discontinued.  I have run out of disk space, and can't afford to lose
230-my job by keeping the archives up.  Everything that is here is available
230-elsewhere:

So, how will the mirror sites be kept up-to-date, if the site they are
mirroring is no longer there?  WHich one will become the primary home
for the stuff now on banjo (primarily the GCC stuff???)
