Yes, that page does look a lot nicer in green :)

These days it's quite comforting seeing {iana,isc,openresolvers}.org 
dropping by for the occasional visit.

Noticed a new one just this morning, axfr-survey.domaincrawler.com

http://domaincrawler.com/ provides yet another free whois / DNS check, 
first one I've seen that attempts an AXFR from all your nameservers.  A 
year ago I might have considered that mildly hostile, but not nowadays, 
and it did reveal just that issue with one of a friend's secondaries.

Quite a nice AS-PATH graph on IP whois lookups, and non-intrusive ads!

cheers, Ian
