The ads are coming from another site, ads.area902.com; thus they are at the 
mercy of the speed of that site. However, from the Area902.com home page:

"Welcome to area902.com. Our site is a new way to understand more about 
Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
Area902.Com is a Free Service provided by Hub.Org Networking Services"

Because hub.org is also displaying the postgresql.org page on the same subnet, 
so the disparity should in theory be quite controllable. *If* we are going 
to keep the ads (and my vote is a strong nay), can we not just have them 
served from the same computer and domain?

Sorry to be dense, but what time period is this for?

Sounds like the mirrors could easily absorb more of the traffic from the 
main page, especially once we get an easier mirroring system in place.
