[BALUG-Admin] Why_ should ns1.linuxmafia.com be doing secondary nameservice (for balug.org.), given that you aren't including it in the authoritative list?

Yeah, I kinda owe you an apology for the pessimistic assumption that you
moved a master nameserver to a new IP and didn't tell me.  It's happened
to me multiple times with other people I do secondary for, though, so
the cynicism has a foundation.  Anyway, excuses aside:  Sorry about that!

I have to remember that my /etc/bind/named.conf.local's comment lines 
are a _really_ critical place to not _anything_ about the status of 
domains, e.g., everything I ought to know that's surprising, plus
contact information fo everyone relevant.

Personally, I've found that chopping some wood with a two-bladed
Viking-style axe helps.  It doesn't solve a thing, but you feel better.
