Does anyone know why gentoo.org would not resolve tonight for about 15 minutes? I tried to nslookup gentoo.org from several machines around the US, and none of them could resolve it. N ow it works again. What was going on?

I've had occasional problems with this as well. Adding some alternate servers to those provided by my ISP seems to e.g. opendns and google dns).

I wonder what's causing it though.

I tried from Louisville KY and Cincinnati OH and Chicago IL. They all failed to resolve during that down interval. They all use different DNS servers. I wonder if you didn't fix it by adding servers, but by just waiting a bit. :?

It's possible; I just know that when I looked into it, nslookup wasn't find no gentoo.or record on the DNS servers provided by my ISP, but it did get name resolution from both opendns and google dns. The periodic "server not found" error I was getting in my browser went away after I added those to the list of servers used by my local dns server (dnsmasq). I know the primary dns servers (my ISP's) are correct because they are automatically updated by dhcp (using openresolv).
