The root server set for the domain system will change in October.

The C.ISI.EDU machine is going to its just reward, and its name server
will stop some time in October. Toast its demise with a root bier. The
NIC will remove it from the domain database approximately one week in
advance. will join the official set of root servers
before C's demise.

As a more long term solution, shakedown of several new root servers
"closer" to the east coast, NSFnet, etc is underway, and should be
provide a long term solution.
