Re: What happened to root-server serial number?
some of the reasons a lot of us pay so little attention to most alternative root nameserver systems are: they often don't do their homework, and they often don't pay attention to the details. diffing text files as a way to check for zone changes would be one way to commit both errors at the same time. running a so-called root name server with recursion enabled would be another. pfaa. re: firstname.lastname@example.org (Peter Dambier) writes: > Todd Vierling wrote: > > On Sat, 3 Sep 2005, Peter Dambier wrote: > > > > > >>And I am glad they are updating again, > > > > > > The root zone (.) changes infrequently enough that a delay of 24h or less > > should not matter at all.
