The "http://news.cis.dfn.de/" address has worked for 1 year after they
announced this change. DFN stands for the "German Science and Research
Network" and is a government funded organisation, and they wanted/needed
separate servers for public and member usage, so they had to find a new
name for their public service: "individual.net".
