France mirror is moving to its own dedicated server.

Like the title says, we are moving the France mirror to is own dedicated server. We will point the sub domain to the new server, and the pkg.fr and download.fr will be unstable for the next 24 hours. The old mirror will put down eventually, it is hosted on the same machine that we build all software packages and ISO's, but in a Jail.

All that said, we have some great news coming soon involving NextArray stay tunned!
