Currently, this file is maintained by Network Solutions : Incorporated of Herndon, Virginia, USA and is made available to the 12 : secondary servers from the primary a.root-server.net. Change control of this : file is held by the IANA with changes, typically modifications of the name : servers for top level domains, being made approximately once or twice a week. I can't find anything that supports your comments at open-rsc.org, and I'm going to assume that you threw in dnso.net as a joke, since a) you own the domain, b) it looks like it was written by a 14 year old and c) nobody would take a site seriously that said it was "moving to a more dynamic architecture, using MS FrontPage2000". --Adam -- Adam McKenna <email@example.com> | "No matter how much it changes, http://flounder.net/publickey.html | technology's just a bunch of wires GPG: 17A4 11F7 5E7E C2E7 08AA | connected to a bunch of other wires." 38B0 05D0 8BF7 2C6D 110A | Joe Rogan, _NewsRadio_ 6:50pm up 231 days, 17:08, 8 users, load average: 0.08, 0.02, 0.01
