I suggest checking the server response too. For example,

address@hidden:~ $ openssl s_client -connect blah:443 -quiet -CApath 
HEAD /blah.iso HTTP/1.0
Host: blah

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

This is a bug in Apache.

[...] if maybe ext3fs wasn't a better pick, or jfs, or maybe reiserfs, oh but

was still ffs, and the sys admins knew it was good. :)  -- Ted Unangst ├╝ber *fs
