In case the Internet seems a little smaller today
From the current version of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EveryDNS:

"EveryDNS.net is one of the world's largest free DNS management services.

As of 00:16, 2 December 2006 (UTC), its services, including all four name servers, appear currently to be offline due to a DoS attack.

EveryDNS is the DNS management provider for almost 60,000 websites."

Tomorrowlands happens to be among them -- as well as most of the other sites hosted on that server. So we'll be seeing a little bit of unexpected downtime until that clears up. The Tlands server itself is still fine (as far as I know), but without DNS, nobody can get to it.*

--
* I know that normally you could just substitute the IP address, but since it's a single server with a number of virtual domains, even that won't get you to my website.

Oh man, bummer.

Are you going to be very late tonight? I was thinking about popping into the book signing downstairs at 6:30.

There's always the option of setting the domain name in the hosts file or equivalent, at least.
