Automatically Find Fastest Repository Server in Ubuntu 8.04

I’ve blogged about this in the past but it seemed to be overlooked.  I blame the poor choice of title.  In any event, I figure it would be worth revisiting as I’ve had a few suggestions on it being a good topic.

note: Your mileage may vary.  I’ve seen these steps suggest a much faster repository and in other cases they can end up being slower.  Perhaps try two or three until you find a good one.
