Hey, Alex, Tom,
Thanks for the replies!
Alex, I think you've got the right answer. As it happens, ibiblio was the default download method chosen when
I clicked, "Download," from the main download page, likely having to do with it being *maybe* 10 km
from where I'm sitting (Durham, N.C., USA). Clarkson, in the same time zone but up in Potsdam, N.Y., USA, is
orders of magnitude (literally) farther away.
Maybe ibiblio just has more traffic and, thus, is slower? Not sure, nor am I sure if there's any way to
change the algorithm for the default download location that gets fed to the Download link. Figured I'd let
folks know, and then decisions can be made on whether to address it. I just imagine that more-naïve users
might get discouraged from using LibreOffice if they don't know to look for other mirrors under the,
"Info," link that's part of the Download button.
Thanks again, and have a great week!
Always do right. This will gratify some people, and astonish the rest.

Not sure what's up with the ibiblio.org mirror, but I'd hold off
recommending it as a download site until ibiblio fixes whatever the issue
Having used this server in the past as the mirror for several Linux
distribs, it is not always one of the best performers I've ever
encountered. Personally, I would just switch to another mirror.
