I am going back to uni next monday, and when I go back I am going to have a computer connected to the uni network. *Unfortunately there is very little Linux related software on the network. *Do any of you guys know a way I can find a decent mirror in NZ, because I have to pay for international data.

Don't worry I just found one. And it is for new zealand use only. So if you do live in NZ and want a good mirror. Go to ftp://ftp.attica.net.nz
