The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

The Recording Industry Association of America website is once again up and running.

It may have been up and running a lot longer. When we checked in yesterday, riaa.com had been registered with the domain service with an IP address of 10.10.10.1 - a nonroutable, private address.

So, in order to see it, you had to call round to the hosters' home and ask permission to join his private network.

On Saturday we reported that a beginner to the world of web hosting, Tomorrow's Solutions Today, Inc., had been given the job of looking after one of the preyed-upon websites in the world, and was running it from home.

You can read the story, Disabled war veteran hosts Disabled RIAA website here. It's one of the strangest sequence of events we've ever reported.

Neither Tomorrow's Solutions Today, Inc. nor the RIAA has yet responded to our enquiries.

A chart showing availability statistics for the website can be seen here. ®
