Level3 rwhois broken

It's nice to see someone is using RWHOIS. Back when I wrote the RWHOIS
daemon for HE I spoke with Mark Kosters (one of the authors of RFC 2167). I
wish I still had the emails because at the time he was shocked anyone would
create software for something that no one really uses. I seem to recall him
calling it a waste of time ;-)

That said... I'm seeing Level 3's RWHOIS down as well. And to be honest,
they're probably not monitoring it.
