I think they may have also upgraded their pipe..  I got about 1.41MB/s
(11 Mb/s) for the whole transfer.  It's about 22G all told.  I'll
probably be trying to load it up into PG on one of our servers tomorrow.
It was a bit over 4 hours for me to pull down off of their
ftp2.census.gov ftp site.

lftp ftp2.census.gov:/geo/tiger/TIGER2007FE> mirror .
