Noticed the archive site has slowed down significantly - 200-500 kilobytes/second where it was definitely megabytes per second previously.

It looks like a crappy return path (coughCogentcough) is causing grief for me on AussieBB, it seems snappier from a Telstra connection.
We’re probably going to put it behind a CDN soon-ish anyway.

Offtopic: is this just a traceroute you’re figuring this out from or something else?
