Drat! I was going to mention the other URL and I found the original message
where Bob had mentioned the other site and I must have looked at it and
got mixed up about which was the new one and which one was the old site,
so deleted a sentence I had started to type about the URL. Besides, the
DNS isn't 100% up to snuff on the .EDU site either.
http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=usna.edu (space).
Thanks for the URL correction though. It's too bad Bob couldn't put some 
goodies in the head of the old page for the robots to find so they would 
eventually de-list it in the search engines:
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX">

The period is put there as a test. <G>
