offlinetime while rebuilding db

we switched the domain-database to new, hopefully faster hdd's sponsored by roelof temmingh (and me).
since postgresql still denies a parallel installation i took the opportunity to rebuild the database, update the server and switch the stuff to the new sata-raid. it'll take a few hours until the database is rebuilt and restarted, but it's weekend - you don't work anyway, do you?

we'll be back again soon.

how nice - the legal department strikes back.

while it's a fact that there are tons of sites offering plain whois-lookups without any comments out there on the net, i am goin to comply and add the disclaimers and comments to serversniffs output, rendering whois-info almost useless.

really - this is dumb and not followable:

whenever you view a whois-page (even at, the content gets saved in proxies and your local browsercache.

whenever you choose to use one of the whois-sites that won't display disclaimers, you're free to save this data.

finally i don't really see a real abuse-potential here.

but anyway: here you are: comments in domainreports are shown. you are no longer allowed to view this data in your browser unless you set your cache-size to 000KB.

you're fine now?
