Huh, in the old BBS days, when we ran all of the logs, shakedowns and
FIDO NET updates at 3AM, that held us for the next 24 hours via a
satellite dnlink. Are the mirrors file updated daily at a given specific
time? Or, just whenever it happens to happen and propagates around in
like fashion? I'm just asking here to know. If the former, why bother to
expire if the file crc matches and has the same period of time and the
date (24 hours worth)? If not, then expire. 

Just trying to get my head around it. It's how I learn stuff. Ric

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
