Default DNS burp, plus reminder

Been off for a few days, and when I tried to on I got a "not found" while my browser was on the "Looking up www.customerssuck.com" stage (also affected Fratching). Rebooted, and while it was booting tried the site on my smartphone (different ISP - got to front page). Back to my PC, and (obviously it worked this time). Just wanted to let you guys know that there may be a DNS burp out there.

Before I rebooted, I did a "whois", and saw something that needed admin attention. When my domain gets as close to expiring as this one is, I would have already got a few e-mails from my domain registry reminding me to renew. Wouldn't want to lose access to the site due to the domain expiring - something that may have slipped through the cracks when the MauveManMuncher took over.

Surprisingly, I haven't gotten a single email, but thank you for the heads up. I've now got them taken care of through 2020

I'm not sure what the DNS hiccup could have been. I long ago gave up on running my own DNS server and instead just use the registrar's.

Doesn't the Mauve Man Muncher sound like something you'd purchase from a *adult novelty* store??

Looks like the glitch turned out to be good luck - probably an issue at my ISP. Reason for the "whois" was that if the glitch turned out to be persistent I wanted to be able to ask someone what was going on, as an alternate contact to one of the mods who is also on Reddit.
