The primary nameserver, ns1.atari.org is apparently down (currently not
pingable). Although ns2.gemsoft.net is up (I can ping it) it is not
answering my queries regarding atari800.atari.org. It does, on the
other hand, have an NS record for atari.org itself, and a CNAME for
www.atari.org -> gem.atari.org (126.96.36.199) which we already determined
is down. My guess is that all the atari.org stuff (DNS, web, mail)
is run off one box and since that is down, we have no atari800.atari.org

This one is a bit different.
$ host -a www.signus.demon.co.uk
www.signus.demon.co.uk MX 10 punt-1.mail.demon.net
www.signus.demon.co.uk MX 10 punt-2.mail.demon.net
So, it seems there are at least MX records for this address, but no A or
CNAME records. So the web site, it seems, does not exist for the moment.
You may, however, be able to contact someone via email to that address.
In short, no, it's not just you.
