replying to myself. bad :)

had this pointed out.. these are "official" according to inaic
http://inaic.com/index.php?p=faq006

and resolving "all known tlds" seems a bit of a stretch, i think they've missed 
my '.foobar' tld on my local nameservers..

also for added humour, from the press release
http://inaic.com/index.php?p=tiscali-introduces

following the link: http://home.tiscali/

doesnt seem to work for me, hmm.. not great to have a broken link in a public 
press release ;)
