	:-) [above].   no the reboot got things launched.  my server is
	"sage.thought.org", but the mail, web, and dns stuff are all in 
	a jail, "aristotle.thought.org", so my guess is that things were 
	blocked at sage.  i realize that's a really LAME excuse... :-)

	if ever i find somebody out here in the seattle area to help me, i'll buy
	a Dell and built ns1.thought.org as aristotle.thought.org; no mo' jails.

	meanwhile, if anybody else has some clues re wha' happened, Pulleze clue
	me in. there was nothing in the error log; it was dated 

2 drwxr-xr-x   3 www  www  1024 Jan 13  2008 error
4 drwxr-xr-x   3 www  www  3584 Jan 13  2008 icons
p0 16:29 <Jail:: aristotle> [5061]                          /usr/local/www/apache22

	um, for apache22, the http.conf no longer has any of the virtual stuff.  
	it's all in Include/httpd-local.conf.  Meanwhile, this newest apache is
	getting to be a religion in its own right.   like emacs vs vim/vi, etc,
