Umm, hk. resolves to the same address from both our machines and is
pingable (modulo a single packet loss from yours, depending on how your
ping counts) from both.  http://hk pulls up a web page on a machine with
the same address.  (www.hkdnr.hk is an alias for hk. - the same machine;
you're not being redirected.)

That's at least as reliable as my (multi-dotted) home domain. :-)

I'm not sure what's not to like here.  But then again, I may be blind.
