The contact information, and preferably the host/mirror name, for the
mirror provided by Academic Computer Club (ACC) needs to be changed as
ACC is moving to a new domain. To verify the validity of this
message, point a web browser towards https://ftp.acc.umu.se/ and

Changes from ftp-...@acc.umu.se to ftp-...@accum.se. The old email

Remove mention of Umeå University:

Available bandwidth:

While not related to the domain move, we'd like to inform you that the
file archive now enjoys 200 Gbps connectivity to SUNET. Our servers
can't handle this quite yet, but we're looking at scaling up by
refreshing server hardware etc.

On behalf of the ACC file archive admins,
