- You can switch mirrors on the fly with the GUI autoupdater.
- If the autoupdater hits a problem (404, no permissions, etc), it will
try the next mirror in the list.
- You can download the patch from any mirror you prefer (or hand it off
via sneakernet, if you like), and apply it yourself. The autoupdater
just manages the grabbing of the patch, but you can download/run it
yourself if you like.
