	the menog lists require you to subscribe to
view the archives.  (So this could be redundant to content
there.. i am not on their list).

	I checked one ISP I know about in Tehran and they appear
to be up.  This doesn't seem to be an like what was seen with Myanmar(Burma)
turning off the tubes.  (At least not yet).

	I'm keeping an eye on things, if people in those parts of
the world need some backup dns or other things, I am sure there are plenty
of people here that can help.
