ns23.empiredatatech.com timed out repeatedly on me but both seemed to 
return the same responses.  These guys have some ugly mistakes in their 
zones and the fact that both nameservers are the same computer scares 
me.  I'm betting they won't care if you ask them to fix it so I really 
recommend moving the hosting or at least the DNS.  Of course, that's 
just my opinion.
