Smashing :) FWIW, I buy my domains through 123-reg - but as soon as I
possibly can (usually after about five minutes) I switch the nameservers
over to afraid.org (ns1.afraid.org-ns4.afraid.org), and while I'm waiting to
do that I add the domain to my account on freedns.afraid.org. It's a great
service, fast propagation for any changes and very quick responses.
123-reg's propagation times were getting so long that I gave up in the end
and moved DNS management over completely!

I highly recommend freedns as a free third party DNS management system
(although you can buy a range of premium accounts if you feel like
supporting it - I do).

Glad to report the rockbox-themes.org redirect is now working here :) Will
it play nice with the auto-download portion of the GUI installer though? (It
might need an htaccess http redirect to transparently redirect all queries,
if the cleansoap mirror is identical to the original site?) I'll quite
happily set up hosting on my dreamhost account purely to host an htaccess
redirect for the interim, if it helps resolve the problem step in the
autoinstaller (I'll contact Mark off-list with the IP address information to
tap into his DNS panel if he likes the sound of this idea).
