It could work now.  The nameservers had a maximum hop count of 30,
which is too small to reach all of the Internet these days.  Someone was
complaining for a Taiwanese address, and the limit was extended to 64.
I don't remember your .au domain address, so I can't check it now.

An 8-bit system that implements TCP/IP could omit the gateway stuff
altogether, so that the system could only be accessed from the same
network segment.  Does anyone know how much this would reduce complexity?

BTW, the Vic-20 cartridge project is going on.  Last weekend I wrote the
VIC-20 part: a menu system integrated with the PuCrunch decompressor.  It
can launch cartridges and BASIC programs at $401, $1001 or $1201.  I'll
try to finish the PC part by this weekend.  The hardware is under
construction, but it'll probably take some weeks.  We'll use SMD and
programmable logic (from Lattice) in the prototype.
