Seems like the DNS entry for mirror.its.dal.ca is gone missing today.
I get "Could not resolve 'mirror.its.dal.ca'" during "apt-get update".

Same thing using the "host" command on my linux laptop:

> oliver at satellite:~$ host mirror.its.dal.ca
> Host mirror.its.dal.ca not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Can you fix this, please?
