i always thought 24.in-addr.arpa pointed somewhere.

oh well, the comment still stands - only a little more specific:
192.24.in-addr.arpa disappeared somewhere.  (that particular address space
being some hfc/adsl networks in australia).


(doesn't bother me - but i'm sure that it was removed not by the current
user of the said address space).
