yp.shoutcast.com gave extended error (404)

I started getting this message when I connected to my server this morning. Yes, I know there is a Troubleshooting, FAQ on the Shoutcast page addressing this issue, specifically. However, I did not make any configuration changes that would result in receiving a null URL. I simply turned off my machine last night and when I turned it back on this morning and prepared to stream, I was given the above message.

Has anyone else has this problem? Can someone please help me out?

404: This typically means you're running software that isn't a SHOUTcast DNAS server. The only supported software for listings in the SHOUTcast directory is the SHOUTcast DNAS. Occasionally this will show up on servers with very very slow Internet connections as well. It should clear itself up with time.

Of particular interest is that last sentence... It could be a congestion problem indirectly related to your ISP. Momentary congestion or outages can cause this. It is also possible that Nullsoft is removing support for older DNAS versions or were making changes to the way their servers interact with your particular version of the DNAS/DSP.
