I see: http://www.openconcept.ca/whois.php?q=projectgutenberg.ca

   Seems it can't connect to the mail servers, and I tried and I can't 
connect to the webserver.

   If he is already using @projectgutenberg.ca , then before any DNS is 
switched over I would need to have the email forwarding table.  What we do 
is have a text file on the website which our email system automatically 
loads which has the mapping of username at domain to where it is then sent

   We need to coordinate this if any services are already active to make 
sure that this is an "addition" and nothing already working gets lost in 
the shuffle.

   Would James be considered the technical lead for the project?

   I figured this would come in handy.  I became an ISP for this type of 
reason, because I was continuously hosting projects where I wanted to 
ensure that the policies of any single upstream wouldn't cause problems 
for me.   We are multi-homed with 3 Ottawa ISPs, one of them being a peer 
we have at OttIX.net
