Re: was i asleep when the gtld servers had the worse problem today?
> is it just me, or are people confused by the references to > f.root-servers.net (Paul Vixie's machine) > and > f.gtld-servers.net > > which was also reported to have problems? I only read > "F server" in this article, but there are two of those, and > only f.root-servers.net is operated by volunteers, f.gtld-servers.net > is (AFAIK) operated by NSI... three things. 1. there is definitely some confusion here. my f (root-servers.net) was lame (which is not fatal to resolvers who query it). NSI's f (gtld- servers.net) was insane (which was fatal to resolvers who queried it.) 2. my F is not a volunteer. f.root-servers.net is a funded activity of ISC. if my F is "volunteer" than every nameserver everywhere is a "volunteer." 3. holtzman has some other axe he's grinding, this is all smokescreening. if i could just stop worrying about that, i could start being insulted by his wierd comments here and elsewhere. -- Paul Vixie <email@example.com>
