Sourceforge SVN don’t like slow connection?

I’m not sure whether anyone else who are currently stuck with a slow connection speed also get An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host message whenever you tried to retrieve a big file (svn update / checkout) from Sourceforge SVN Repository over the last few weeks or is it just me who get that message?

So far:

– I’ve tried updating the subversion client on my machine to 1.5.3 (command line version) and still i get the same message
– Change the svn address to http instead of https to get more speed and still nothing
– Doing a fresh checkout instead of upgrade just in case that’s the source of the problem and the result is still same

And finally ….

No Warranty for your PS3, if there’s no Official Support in your Country

So … yesterday i just received a response from Sony regarding my enquiry about PS3 Warranty and such in Indonesia (because i have a plan on buying a brand new PS3). And as a matter of fact, this is the first time ever i asked such question before buying a game console, because i know that there’ll be no official supports for game console here because of … well you know … piracy issue here

I decided to ask this question directly because i have a XBOX 360 console that i bought April 2008 (which is still under warranty if it’s not flashed), and i have sent it for repair once because it won’t read any disc and i keep getting open tray message although there’s a disc inside, a month ago (not to Microsoft because i have a flashed 360, although i’m not the one who flashed it because it came pre-flashed from the store and beside it’s hard to get a non pre-flashed 360 console here) and the cost to repair it … is around 36.4 USD (if converted to USD) … and right now (one month after i’ve sent my 360 for repair) … my 360 console won’t read any disc again, and i’m guessing this time i need to replace the lens … which is going to cost me around 78 USD … and of course i consider that as expensive

In short, i decided to ask this question to Sony so just in case in the future i’m experiencing problem and it is still under the warranty, i can still send it to them directly to get repaired for free (in my case i always have problem with optic ever since the PSX era)

At first (before i sent them an email message) i thought that even if there is no official supports here for the Playstation products, i can still at least get a replacement / repair service for free as stated at the above paragraph but here is their response:
