	There is a serious dns problem on the 'net as a whole.  For the
last two plus weeks dns as a service has been unbelievably unstable.  I,
and others, have seen sites drop off the net like yahoo and google.  
There's no rhyme or reason to the failures either.  A site will disappear
for a little while then return.  This is happening on very disparate
networks, too.  I've seen it on Verio, AT&T, some of the cable net's and
even the NIPRNET.  I haven't seen anything mentioned on it but I believe
that is because most people are thinking this is only a localized burp of
their dns and haven't put it together with any one else.  I've seeing it
because I am on so many geographically and logically separated networks.

Farewell neighbor.  Thank you for giving us a safe place for so many
