[Baypiggies] DNS

The domain name changes have propagated.

Rick Moen has volunteered to continue providing slave DNS service for us in 
the linuxmafia.com domain.  Unfortunately, that is not possible at this 
time.  The current registrar has a brain-dead piece of coding where they 
will not recognize their default name servers as legal DNS servers for 
purposes of making additions.

Perhaps there is a workaround (get them to fix, assign all names 
explicitly, make potion using bat wings, etc.).  ... but I intend to change 
registrars anyway (better control panel, really excellent tech/cust 
service, and, ahem, much less expensive).

The most convenient time to change registrars is very shortly after a 
meeting so that people wanting to find out meeting info are not 
inconvenienced.  Our next regular meeting is June 8.  I plan to start the 
registrar transfer June 9.  I plan to add linuxmafia.com back as a slave 
DNS at the time I move to new registrar.

In this DNS change, the following machines have been removed as nameservers:


for security and configuration reasons.  Unless I hear reasons to the 
contrary, I will not add them back.
