[smokeping-users] DNS failures

While playing with the new color stuff, and restarting smokeping many
times, DNS disappeared for one the routers I was tracking. This causes
smokeping to fail to start. So after a few minutes, I had to comment
out that one from the config.

So, would it be possible for smokeping to print out an error, and then
just ignore the offending host, rather than abort completely? (I know
I could use IPs, but a few I track might be subject to changes so I'd
prefer hostnames.)

Secondly, after DNS came back, and I restarted, I had huge, fat spikes
for that one with a red line at the top of the grid for 100% loss. Is
there anyway in this circumstance to differentiate and just to show a
gap? Just a thought...
