Thanks, francois. It was just a request, not a demand. :) It seems there are a lot of failures.

I get the same result as francois.

But if you're asking for this it means you're about to release a new Porteus version, right? :)

I don't know if you needed another person to test. I just tried it and all the mirrors were found. :)
New to Linux but learning. Hoping to help out Porteus community. :)
