Good idea.

Very nice way to handle it, nice and transparent. :-) It seems to work quite 
well, although on an unrelated note the South American mirror doesn't seem to 
mirror KDE any longer.

That would be nifty, so they would just get re-directed elsewhere or be 
prompted to choose another mirror with an appropiate message?

>(2) make a finer-grained image map

As long as it is still quick and easy to find your region that would be good.

Sounds good...

Just a few little comments/suggestions:

- - To this line "In the future, you should be redirected directly to the 
selected server, unless you use the link" add "below to choose a different 

- - make the link below that a href so it can be easily bookmarked and stands 
out as a link.

- - Can the currently selected mirror be displayed when you return to ? 

- - Also might be a good idea to put in a brief explantion somewhere as to what 
a primary mirror is opposed to a secondary one.

- - I assume you will use the existing template so you get the DTD tag 
for XHTML transitional? If not that needs to be added and you also have a 
missing double quote in one of the tags: <br clear=all" />, after adding the 
DTD and fixing that tag the page should validate.

Other than that great work and well done. :-)
