perfect sense.

The reason I spoke up is this was the 2nd or 3rd time since upgrading.

kernel.org also comes back with probs:

wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.x/patch-3.11.3.xz

I can't find the 3rd rq, right now, I so not sure what its prob was...
but 3 probs in as many days and I begin to think wget isn't accessing the
right security files (the "out of touch" bit...)....;-)
