What's sick is that this is needed in the first place.

These are basic operations you'd think standard protocols would cover. USB audio definitely does. So why?

Any mirrors? It seems to have crashed and burned.

I've not seen any issue in monitoring.

Just in case, here is a Web Archive Mirror: https://web.archive.org/web/20220410093737/https://sayr.us/r...

Maybe your monitoring has cached DNS records? It seems like DNS is the problem here:

    $ host sayr.us
    sayr.us is an alias for sinkhole.paloaltonetworks.com.
    sinkhole.paloaltonetworks.com has address

Isn't Palo Alto Network Sinkhole a feature deployed on your own firewall? I'll look into why it gets sinkholed, I'm guessing they use public blacklist and I was added to one of them.
