Well, there are people who will disagree with that statement (they will
tell you that nslookup doesn't work, is braindead broken, and that you
should use dig or something else).

However, that's beside the point. What I'm wondering about is that you're
using the plural - 'coincide with situations'. As you may remember from
ye good ol'days, I take my job as provider quite serious. I know about
the mishap from today/yesterday, but does this happen more often? I can
hardly imagine it (we're monitoring our nameservers round the clock, and
short of applying nuclear artillery I wouldn't know of a way to interrupt
Above.net's connectivity), but if you think that squeakfoundation.org's
availibility is anywhere below 99.something percent, I'd like to hear.

BTW: a 36 hour outage of a domain should not cause mail loss. At least not
with correctly implemented MTA's, I dunnow about Exchange.
