Don't worry, VI is acceptable as an editor but my Debian package also provides NANO.
Then, I found out I had made a stupid mistake; the nameservers are not on 192 but 195
So, it looks like this now:
sheevaplug-debian:~# cat /etc/resolv.conf
sheevaplug-debian:~# ping 184.108.40.206
PING 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168) 56(84) bytes of data.

but the results for apt-get update are still the same:
sheevaplug-debian:~# apt-get update
