@Home Users: A little information..
Was reading my email this bright sunny morning, and I found one from 8wire discussing in short the poor 900,000 Excite@Home users who are without service. It also mentioned a method for continuing your service..
I thought that the chances are that at least one AO user is running on @Home, so here is a snippet from the email...

As I'm sure you know (unless you've been making yourself
comfortable under the nearest rock), the week didn't
exactly start out with a bang for many Excite@Home customers.
About 900,000 are currently without service, though
many have discovered that "without service" simply means
they're required to find an alternate nameserver to
use for DNS queries. Nonetheless, I'm glad I'm on DSL!

I wouldn't trust any server that's based off a search engine (Unless excite has changed dramatically since I last saw it, I really never go there)
