I can't get to the spiritone or aracnet pages, or their spasm page.
Pings time out and the browser says that it can't open the web page.
When I point dig at the comcast nameserver, dig says:

$ dig @ www.spiritone.com

; <<>> DiG 9.6.1-P2-RedHat-9.6.1-7.P2.fc11 <<>> @ www.spiritone.com

Network Solutions lists their phone number as 503 240 8200.  See

When I call that number, I get a fast busy signal.  Their fax number
answers, however.

Sorry for not replying to Joe Pruett's email.  That's difficult since
I was subscribed to the plug group through my aracnet.com email
address, and as Joe wrote, that's not working.
