IP address not resolving

Until such time as wrog returns to Washington to fix the problem, you can use the IP address, which is

Sorry for the inconvenience.

  2. Never keep emacs buffers open on the /overlay directory, or if you're prone to doing this (say because it's a convenient window on the List of Things That You've Changed from the Standard Distribution) then you might want to consider using uniquify.el. (of course this is probably all moot since I seem to be one of the 5 people left on the planet who still uses Emacs, but anyway...)
Anyway, it's all fixed now.
