[Talk-ca] GeoBase NHN - FTP not working & quick update

Hi,Im just trying to download some areas.. and finding that with HTTP
download, it downloads files that are corrupt.
and the link to the FTP directory is broken. :-( 
Anyway, while that is down for some reason, I will continue to work on
showing more details of the Roads from the CanVec list. Hopefully the script
should be ready this week (or sooner) and i'll make some test areas...
probably Crowsnest Pass is most appropriate.
This way, people can use this stuff along with importing all the other
features... having the roads as a "back-up" (so to speak) after the
geobase2osm "train" went through the area and left pieces of 'straw' around
the edges. :-) figuratively speaking... since the 'train' would look like
it took pieces of 'straw' along with WAY.
And BTW, on the lest message you noted that we want to import the data
"quickly". I would argue that point, as our (team talk-ca) goal is to
import the data so that it's technically accurate the 1st time through, so
to avoid having to 'off-load' so much data. .... all though, im sure by
mosquito season there will be BUGS... but they will be swapped as soon as
Were taking our time, with the test areas, trying (at least for me,
despiratly) to get as much feedback as possable before finding out errors.
Before actually importing it.
