Well, I was surprised of one thing - I looked at AltME rebol-view config, and it actually contains IP adress, not a name! I checked agains DNS setting using nslookup and IP was the same. So I wonder what is going on? Simply their servers are down or they have problems with DNS entries and it would not be for the first time IIRC, but maybe I remember it incorrectly and it was RT who had problems with DNS some not so long time ago? -pekr-
