For those of you who may have missed it, it appears that compaq.com has
disappeared from the .com root. Not only a.root, but f.gtld etc...

I found a recursive server with the ttl not yet expired showing 

C:\>nslookup www.compaq.com

DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
Non-authoritative answer:

You may want to warn your customer service reps... and use 207.18.199.3
