Ubuntu Download Packages/Updates for EOL Unsupported Old Releases

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 for testing purposes but I couldn't even download SSH server:

sudo sed -i -e 's/us.archive.ubuntu.com/old-releases.ubuntu.com/g' /etc/apt/sources.list

After running the above make sure you do a "apt-get update"

Note with the above that I have the search string of "us.archive.ubuntu.com" change it to whatever is in your sources.list

The above does not fix all repositories either, I haven't  had a chance to look into how to fix the others.  It's quite frustrating and disappointing that the repositories get moved and there's no automatic redirect or anything.
