I've been having problems sending mail to the developers list occasionally.
Ever now and again messages take hours to get there.

I'm experiencing this problem now (13:25 GMT) and have investigated. It
appears the DNS servers for slimdevices.com aren't answering hence mail is
sitting on my SMTP server. I can't access anything @slimdevices.com (mailing
lists, website or cvs).

I looked up the address of lists.slimdevices.com in an email header and
found it to be 64.72.158.52. I've tried pinging it and get nothing. I can
ping 64.72.158.1.

I can access the rest of the internet fine and ping your subnet so I don't
think it's an issue with my ISP. This generally happens when you're all away
from work so I'd guess it may something shutting down when idle. I only
notice due to timezone differences...

Slimdevices may want to check all is well with their setup.

Thanks. Sean replaced the motherboard on our main web server that's
also our DNS server. We'll be doing some work to make the system a
little more resilient.
