Can't access the Raspberry Pi mirror redirector?
Well, here's a bunch of sources that you can add to /etc/apt/sources.list to get yourself back on your feet - in case of another shutdown of the Raspberry Pi foundation's websites.
Last updated: November 2015. List based on a cache of: http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianRepository
Regions & Countries:

- New Caledonia
- South Korea

It is recommended that you only choose the mirrors that are hosted in the country/region closest to you.
Also, have a copy of the mirror list, but instead of it being the latest debian release, point it to an older version.
"deb http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/raspbian/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free rpi"
"deb http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/raspbian/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free rpi"
in the same file.
Don't forget to "apt-get update" after you have modified "/etc/apt/sources.list"!
