Hi All,

Due to the high cost of hosting OpenIndiana's dlc.openindiana.org on the 
CDN, I have decided to instead discontinue this in favour of getting 
worldwide mirrors online.

As of now, dlc.openindiana.org points at the origin server in the UK 
instead of the CDN. I have enabled mod_bw in Apache and restricted 
downloads of the .iso/.usb files to 250KB/sec.

We will be contacting worldwide mirrors asking them to mirror 
dlc.openindiana.org via rsync (which is not rate limited) and once we 
have a reasonable number we can update the website to list these. And 
obviously we still have the torrents too.
