I still run my FTP survey at this URL (updated daily):
The webserver only has a 144 kbps uplink, so the pages are
somewhat slow at times. If someone is willing to give me
(upload and/or shell) access on a better connected apache
webserver, I could install the script suite there.

I'm in charge for /pub/FreeBSD on ftp7.de.freebsd.org, and
this is what "df -k" has to say about it:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/xxxxxx 159706640 159509016 197624 100% /xxxxxx
It's unlikely that more diskspace will be available in the
forseeable future. Not good. :-(

Oh, that's easy, there's a file: /pub/FreeBSD/dir.sizes

That's a tough one, I guess.
