You recently posted a message to the Usenet which referred to the host
pit-manager.mit.edu, either by name or by IP address. The headers of
the message in question were as follows:

This message is being sent to inform you of a change in the name and
IP address of pit-manager. Although the name "pit-manager.mit.edu"
will continue to work, I am trying to get people to start using
"rtfm.mit.edu" instead. Therefore, I would appreciate it if you would
refer to "rtfm" in the future instead of "pit-manager". If you
maintain periodic postings which refer to "pit-manager", please modify
them to refer to "rtfm" instead.
Mentioning the IP address of a host explicitly is discouraged, because
IP addresses are less stable than host names. If you must continue to
mention rtfm.mit.edu's IP address in postings, then please use
188.8.131.52, its new address, rather than 184.108.40.206. However, be
aware that it is likely that rtfm's address will probably be changing
again in the near future.
You may notice that the names "pit-manager.mit.edu" and "rtfm.mit.edu"
are actually nicknames for a machine whose canonical name is
"bloom-picayune.mit.edu". This, too is going to change -- in the near
future, the canonical name of this machine will be changing to
"charon.mit.edu" (and that's when the IP address is going to change
again). However, the name "rtfm.mit.edu" will continue to work, so
you should use it starting now.
Thank you for your attention.
