TECHNOLOGY: Hijacked Host

Panix, the oldest commercial Internet provider in New York and the host for this site, fell victim to domain hijacking over the last few days, sending some of my mail to godknowswhere and making this site inaccessible (though a couple of comment spammers were still able to slip through, of course). As reported by slashdot today (just to make sure the tech staff don't get any sleep tonight), neither their registrar nor verisign has been much help in sorting out the mess in a timely fashion. Depressing.
