>>>import socket
>>>socket.gethostname()
'server312.example.com'
>>>socket.gethostbyname(socket.gethostname())
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
socket.gaierror: (8, 'hostname nor servname provided, or not known')
>>>

Obviously, I substituted "example.com" above; however, the host that comes 
back no longer exists, so it may as well be "example.com"! And the server # 
is courtesy of the server farm. In fact, the whole thing is. What do?
TIA,
Eric
