Now that the discussaion move here from the linu-ilx list I can tell you 
that it has only very slight relationship to Perl:
We originally started to discuss a CPAN mirror but as we have already 3
it would not make such a big difference so I try to convince them to 
provide a bigger harddsik.

do you know what is its size ?

that is exactly what I try to find out with the above question before 
writing down the real request.

They would provide that too hence it is important that this is an ISP.

actually I quite disappointed so far with the response of the linux 
community. Don't you (ok I know I am writing this on the Perl mailing list 
:-( ) want to jump on the possibility and help and ISP to become clued
and help us ?
