you have high expectations for a thread that Karl starts. I admire your
optimism. You might have started your own thread for your own issues but
there are some who are going for the all-time record for thread length
that appreciate your efforts.

CentOS does handle geo-oriented mirros better than Fedora but I think
Fedora has been trying to get there. Perhaps Rahul has some opinions on
this topic.

Perhaps there's a black hole that has your system pulling from the same
wrong mirror is not accidental...it's a Groundhog Day thing.
