Looks to me like Microsoft have stuffed up this aspect. Last promotion
they put a server on the AARNet network, which we were happy to host
(competitive neutrality works both ways).  This time they're using
some US-hosted content distribution network.  I really hope Monash are
aware of that aspect, or their internet bill resulting from the e-mail
is going to be larger than they might hope (the traffic has moved from
the free traffic class -- within AARNet -- to the the most expensive
traffic class -- overseas commercial).
