The internet connection on which and the mail servers sit will be upgraded sometime after 
mid-week of July 23. The new line will have more bandwidth, 
which should speed transfers.  Note that the IP address of the 
website will be changing.  This change should be transparent 
to everyone; however, if you have trouble accessing this site 
after that date, you may want to try to flush your domain name 

Note that the CVS servers will also be affected. 

(The new line will be a 768Kbit/sec DSL line, the current 
line is a 512K line.  Combined trafic on this net is about 
45 Gigabytes/month, a little less than 1/3 of the total 
theoretical bandwidth of the old line, and less than 1/5 of 
the new line.  This should make downloads and web access 
feel zippier.)

(Note that not all of the above traffic is downloads; 
although maybe 1/2 is.  The typical size of a gnucash package
is 4MBytes, so the above implies that there are about 5,000
downloads a month.  Just FYI!)
