I would personally prefer not to have a mirror site. It's a very generous
offer, but it makes it much harder for me to work out all the site
statistics (number of unique sites visiting both servers, for example). It
is currently connected to a network which has a 20Gb core with 1Gb
trans-atlantic bandwidth. The slowest piece of the entire net is the
100BaseT connection from the server to the switch, everything after that
is >= 1Gb.

Is connectivity from Canada really bad?

I'm very grateful for the offer though :-)
