I would concur with your assessment.  Outside of DNS server authors
and root operators, I don't often encounter true enlightenment.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ I may not have been enlightened.. but at one time I was at least known as a benevolent (mostly) wizard of DNS.. I'm a bit out of date though.. I only do simple things now. The sins I commited with a couple of "packet shredders" (DEC Alpha's running Linux with 8 to 12 ethernet ports), iptables and some DNS servers that said different things depending on what network you were on.... I still had not seen anything like the kludges of those days..

No extra kludge needed anymore :) Regards, dtb - -- "Some things in life can never be fully appreciated nor understood unless experienced firsthand.
