Hi David,

Are you a customer of Telstra Internet Direct, with
registered with them as a secondary nameserver? ceased
forwarding requests for other than their client domains some time ago.

If you're a customer of TID then the Custdata interface usually lets me
resolve problems, and if not they do generally respond well to requests
for assistance.  This is assuming your primary NS is properly set up of
course, and that your classless IN-ADDR reverse DNS is configured there?

Currently, here, your domain has both NS with 
and no A record assigned; I can't see related to that.

Overnight at worst, here, the 2 or 3 times I've had to request updates.

I have to concur with Kim; I haven't had to go past email to CW to get
anything sorted so far, after the initial transfer of data for to
ausregistry was so well botched in a number of cases, including ours.

We still have 6 months to see if CW can get something together vaguely
approximating to the standard that Michael Malone ran the 'old regime'
registry for, or if moving to another registrar may be needed.

If in doubt, get on the blower .. if email doesn't work as usual.
