Chuck,

>More on the MS/DNS problem (IF that is what it was...)...

I find it interesting that MS is placing the blame on their own technicians
messing up the DNS entries.  Yesterday Matt Drudge posted the (alledged) results
of a whois which would seem to implicate more than just employee error.

By the time I read it and did my own whois, MS was back up and working.  And
although Drudge has removed the link from his main page, the report can still be
viewed at http://www.drudgereport.com/msft.htm

The first few entries returned by the whois were quoted as:

MICROSOFT.COM.SHOULD.GIVE.UP.BECAUSE.LINUXISGOD.COM
MICROSOFT.COM.SE.FAIT.HAX0RIZER.PAR.TOUT.LE.ZOY.ORG
MICROSOFT.COM.OWNED.BY.MAT.HACKSWARE.COM
MICROSOFT.COM.N-AIME.BILL.QUE.QUAND.IL.N-EST.PAS.NU
MICROSOFT.COM.MUST.STOP.TAKEDRUGS.ORG
MICROSOFT.COM.IS.SOON.GOING.TO.THE.DEATHCORPORATION.COM
(etc)

If this was due to employee technician error, I'll bet they'll be out of a job
soon. :)

Doug
