Just to let everyone know, there has been some major DNS cache poisoning going on at Verisign apparently done by some Brazilians ("Web Pirates") for web site defacements. If your parking your DNS at (netsol/verisign) you might want to see if you site has been redirected to (owned by Interland of Atlanta) using random DNS servers. 

Don't you love UDP.
