GoDaddy DNS issues and workaround

A recent DNS outage at GoDaddy may cause wikifur.com and flayrah.com to be inaccessible because your browser cannot turn the name into an address.

We have these names set to be cached for a week to avoid precisely this kind of situation, and expect GoDaddy to be back up before long - however, if you find this issue affects you, you can place the following lines temporarily in your hosts file (or equivalent) to restore service:
188.40.88.237 wikifur.com
188.40.88.237 en.wikifur.com
188.40.88.237 flayrah.com
188.40.88.237 www.flayrah.com

Be sure not to keep them in there beyond the outage, as our IP address may change.

P.S. The DNS outage also took down downforeveryoneorjustme.com - not because it doesn't resolve, but because it is over its bandwidth limit.
