Wrong guess. The InterNIC is resolving correctly what it
fails to configure correctly. It isn't a misconfiguration,
but your misconception. My announce of starship.skyport's
death is more than a month old.

something seems to be a show stopper. (Not my first
experience with Networksolutions.com's Perl scripts).
