Yep, so you're responsible for that crappy ui?
Dotster's wins for ease of use so far...

Don't think so, it's just that I can "host dns" there for stuff that 
isn't hosted on their servers.

I'd hope their nameservers are also pretty robust?

When I wrote that email, I was actually proposing hosting the masters 
there. I don't mind being "DNS boy" for zope.org and I'd hope 
rackspace's nameservers would scale to the challenge...

If I ever did stop doing Zope stuff (hahahaha) then I'd happilly hand 
the records on to someone else.

If I dropped dead (or got taken out by that hitman Jens keeps on 
promising), the DNS could similarly be moved elsewhere...

That'd be me ;-)
