    And the summary of the article is apparently wrong, someone stole/hacked into TheRegister DNS zone, TheRegister www servers are intact.

    ... which is actually kind of cool, seeing as how the Slashdot Effect seems to be wreaking it's usual havoc on the hacker's servers.

    Every now and then, reality self-organises in the direction of justice.

    So there credibility is lost. The number of businesses out there who stack everything on a $10 a year relationship is just insane.

    Oh, I see. I didn't realize that the problems was they hadn't spent enough money on their DNS services.

    Tell me, is that a new approach to network security? You just stack up piles of currency around the DNS server and then there's nothing to worry about?

    I can't think of a single reason that you shouldn't expect your DNS services to be secure, no matter how little you happen to be paying for it.

    Your credibility is lost when your customers say it is.

    Reputation's funny that way.

    They're. For the love of all that is holy "they're back"

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
