ICANN Approves Internationalized Chinese Domain Names

Jesus IS the Devil Re:left-to-right-top-to-bottom-you-silly-foreigner (116 comments)

"Americans and French" "worked up" about "the intrusion of foreign languages"?

I'm looking up and down this whole thread and I don't see any evidence of what you're saying. Or maybe you're just anti-American/French and are projecting your own opinions onto others?

Besides, language is about communication. It doesn't matter how it gets done, just that it gets done. Sure the world has hundreds of languages around, but in today's world, english is the common language that binds the world together. If that hurts some people's egos, well then tough luck. Go ahead and try speaking insisting in speaking Thai in, say Africa and see how far that gets you.

Mozilla Accepts Chinese CNNIC Root CA Certificate

Jesus IS the Devil CNNIC is evil (256 comments)

I've had first-hand experience with CCNIC that ought to put things into perspective. I registered a domain name at Godaddy, and also registered a couple of DNS servers. Use of these registered DNS servers worked flawlessly, until I had to set them for Chinese clients who had registered their domains via net.cn. They were unable to set these DNS servers because the system kept telling them the DNS servers were invalid. Upon calling net.cn's tech support, the client was told to talk to CNNIC.

So, I spoke to CNNIC on behalf of the client, and was basically told to go talk to Godaddy, and that Godaddy would contact CNNIC and know what to do. I thought this was odd, but sent a support ticket to Godaddy. They confirmed that the DNS servers in question had absolutely no problems and I was even sent a link verifying this over at ICANN, which is an internationally accepted organization for domain names.

I tried CNNIC again and told them that my DNS servers were valid and registered, even recognized by ICANN. I was rebuffed and basically told to go talk to Godaddy again. A few rounds of this with various people resulted in absoF*kinglutely no results. I think Godaddy is right in this case. There's nobody to talk to. The DNS servers are in-fact valid.

What I was told instead, was to go to net.cn and purchase another domain name from there, then pay 10RMB per DNS server for that new domain. I ended up having to do exactly that, to solve this problem.

After this ordeal, I am certain that CNNIC is in fact as evil as they come. They don't care about international standards, just what their omnipotent bosses tell to to do.

Hosting Data-Transfer Quotas Are Fading Out

Jesus IS the Devil Nothing interesting (135 comments)

These hosting space providers are a dime a dozen. A more interesting type is something like Topcities, which offers free application hosting with lots of free templates for Joomla, wordpress, phpbb, etc.

Researchers Hijack Storm Worm To Track Profits

Jesus IS the Devil tough love or robinhood style (128 comments)

I see two potential solutions...

One is a worm that's released in the wild whose sole purpose is to find and clean infected/vulnerable computers, and then throw huge warning signs at them. If the same machine is re-infected X times within a year, the worm just shuts the computer off. A Robin-Hood worm of sorts. Illegal just like Batman, but hell, if it does the internet some good, why not. If they don't do it, the vulnerable hosts don't just disappear. Instead, they just sit there waiting for real hackers to exploit them. Or, if they're already compromised, they can only do harm anyway.

The other solution is tough love. Get caught with a compromised machine, your internet connection is shut off automatically, until you can prove that you've fixed the vulnerability. But of course, the ISPs won't wanna do this voluntarily. After all, this would affect their profits...
