How to sub-delegate a reverse zone [KB1240]

How to sub-delegate a reverse zone [KB1240]: "For example say you have IP addresses 11.22.33.0/24 (11.22.33.0 to 11.22.33.255) and you want to sub-delegate reverse DNS for 11.22.33.64/30 (11.22.33.64 to 11.22.33.67) to your customer's DNS servers.
Then in your "33.22.11.in-addr.arpa" zone, you would add an NS-record for "64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa" for each of your customers's DNS servers, and a CNAME-record for "XX.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa" pointing to "XX.64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa" for each of the IP addresses in the customer's IP range where XX is the last segment of each IP address like this:

NS: 64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa -> ns1.customer.com
NS: 64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa -> ns2.customer.com
CNAME: 64.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa -> 64.64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa
CNAME: 65.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa -> 65.64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa
CNAME: 66.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa -> 66.64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa
CNAME: 67.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa -> 67.64/30.33.22.11.in-addr.arpa"

So, You Want Your Own Domain, Huh?

So, You Want Your Own Domain, Huh?: ""The following address is to be handled using hypertext transfer protocol." Get it?
"www.htmlgoodies.com" is the actual address. In Internet lingo it's the URL (Universal Resource Locator).
Please note that the "www" is not required. Many sites don't even use it. Cnn.com and Webcrawler.com only use their domain names without that prefix. Also, contrary to a popular belief, the "www" doesn't always have to be www. It can be just about anything the tech wants it to be. For example. Netscape's homepage is home.netscape.com."

What is "reverse DNS" and do I need it? [KB1052]

What is "reverse DNS" and do I need it? [KB1052]: "However reverse DNS is important for one particular application.
Many e-mail servers on the Internet are configured to reject incoming e-mails from any IP address which does not have reverse DNS.
So if you run your own e-mail server, reverse DNS must exist for the IP address that outgoing e-mail is sent from.
It does not matter what the reverse DNS record for your IP address points to as long as it is there. If you host multiple domains on one e-mail server, just setup reverse DNS to point to whichever domain name you consider primary."

What is "reverse DNS" and do I need it? [KB1052]

What is "reverse DNS" and do I need it? [KB1052]: "Reverse DNS is also different from forward DNS in who points the zone (domain name) to your DNS server.
With forward DNS, you point the zone to your DNS server by registering that domain name with a registrar.
With reverse DNS, your Internet connection provider (ISP) must point (or "sub-delegate") the zone ("....in-addr.arpa") to your DNS server.
Without this sub-delegation from your ISP, your reverse zone will not work.

Reverse DNS is mostly used by humans for such things as tracking where a web-site visitor came from, or where an e-mail message originated etc."

Purim from the Torah

Purim from the Torah: "No other Biblical text exhibits such a density of Kabbalistic idiom. The fact that this abundance of mystical expression coexists alongside a total absence of reference to G-d Himself can perhaps be understood by way of analogy to a panorama of stars that only becomes visible when the radiance of the sun has receded from view.

The term sefirah itself, perhaps the most basic within the lexicon of Kabbalah, finds repeated expression in this book through the related term sefer , "book" (Esther 2:23, 6:1, 10:2, 9:25, 32, et al), constructed from the same Hebrew root, s-f-r."

Mimsy: Apple software stops connecting to the Internet; Firefox continues fine: " don’t know what changed, but in the last few days every once in a while I’ll appear to lose my Internet connection on Mac OS X. However, when I look into it I’ll discover that while Apple software—Safari, iTunes, Software Update, and Mail—think my computer is not connected to the net, non-Apple software such as Firefox connect just fine.

The Startup Mentor

The Startup Mentor: "mart potential mentors from those who just use all the right words.
Be "mentorable." If you come off as someone who knows everything -- or thinks you do -- many people will back away. If you want to learn, be willing to consider ideas that may not match your expectations or opinions. Above all, don’t fall victim to your own hype. Your business may or may not have serious problems, but another viewpoint will help you sort things out.
Remain flexible. You may have mentors who stay with you over the long haul, but you will also benefit from people who provide just an afternoon of insightful ideas."
