Looking in the Rackspace UI now, they're all showing up. So, this
seems to be working. (not that we've testing restoring yet)
With those three server which only let you pick the time of day,
and not the retention, it's likely due to their server type.
download.gluster.org, gluster-mirror2, and gluster.com-mirror1
are all "old" VM's using Rackspace\s previous generation
infrastructure. They're also really expensive (taking almost
1/3 of entire budget by themselves). We should probably migrate
anything on them to new hosts in the next few months. :)
