Unplanned Semi-Outage, Or, No, We Do Not Want Your Cheap Virtual Products

Apologies again.

A massive spam wave emanating from China took out our sister server, and gave the DNS wobblies as well.  We'll be re-arranging our DNS this weekend - look for a notice on that.  There may be a little downtime while that happens, but that will be better than the major downtime we get currently when something bad happens.

Update: We've completed the reconfiguration of our DNS servers, and we're just awaiting the update of the root servers.  Once this is completed, should be isolated from outside server failures - unless the .nu domain itself goes flaky again, which has only happened once since 1997.
