onion-router.net down temporarily

Since at least one person (Steven Murdoch) seems to find
onion-router.net useful and noticed when it went down, I thought it
worth a note about status.
The domain name expired on January 28th. Since Network Solutions was
sending notification only to someone who has not been at NRL for
nearly ten years, the impending expiry was not noticed before the
fact. Since only the principal account holder can pay for an
extension, since the process of changing the principal account holder
information is far from any of rational, quick, or painless, and since
they will only grant a single fifteen day extension, it will be down
until I can get this resolved. I will continue to spend far too much
time on this until it is fixed, which I hope will be soon.
