You also could easy check a mirror with this script:
# Test Arch Linux Mirror status
# Parameter: URL to test (full path to Arch Linux dir on mirror)
# 2008/06/10 Gerhard Brauer <gerbra at archlinux.de>
ARCHES="i686 x86_64"
REPOS="core extra community"

echo "Mirror-URL: $1"
echo "Last timestamp from rsync.archlinux.org (updated each hour)"
echo "------------------------------------------------------------"
for arch in ${ARCHES}; do
    for repo in ${REPOS}; do
        echo -e -n "$arch-$repo:\t"
        date +"%x %X" -u -d @$(wget -q -O - $1/$repo/os/$arch/lastsync)

ex.: sh /tmp/mt.sh ftp://mirror.rit.edu/archlinux
shows you (in UTC) the lastsync time. Means: this mirror has last synced
to his upstream between the displayed timestap  and displayed timestamp
+ 1 hour.
To see the time according to your timezone, remove the -u parameter on
date call.
