I’m not sure how, but tnir’s DNS entry got zapped tonight. According to “host tnir.org”:
tnir.org is an alias for wc.traffic.puredns.com.
wc.traffic.puredns.com is an alias for wc.funnel.revenuedirect.com.akadns.net.
wc.funnel.revenuedirect.com.akadns.net has address 22.214.171.124
I’ve checked, and I have tnir.org registered at lowcostdomains.ca through Dec 2 2006. The whois entry is still correct, and says, in part:
Created On:02-Dec-1999 06:06:24 UTC

I’ve used lowcostdomains’ web interface to reset the DNS back to normal, but I worry that the MX records are gone. :-/ We shall see (hopefully).Until this all blows over, the old-style tnir.mef.org domain name can be used for some things. http://tnir.mef.org points at what used to be rae.tnir.org, and mail to email@example.com should also work. Unfortunately, I don’t have “wildcard” DNS set up for perrella.org or luisa.org (two domains that still point correctly to tnir), so I can’t quickly or easily set up alternate domains for David’s blog or Tech Tok. :-/
