We have one nameserver in HE's facility.  I have a couple other general
purpose servers there too.  I helped to start and currently run a large
non-profit colocation facility up there. (Where I have been trying to get
Evolt to move to for quite some time...)

Our other nameservers are in San Diego, Washington DC, and The Netherlands.
