Massive, Coordinated Patch To the DNS Released

Sevn Re:The Death of BIND (315 comments)

I am one of your support customers. Thing is, I'm not comfortable saying much else because we were told the 10th was the magic day, and it leaked 2 days early. To be clear, the patched BIND worked the way it's supposed to, and I'm sure it's going to work fine for most customers. With the news that you have patched versions that address the issues with heavily taxed servers, probably almost all of them. We jumped the gun because that's what we do. : ) And I'm sorry I was critical on BIND. It is still the industry standard, and the original daemon that made it possible to get rid of enormous host files. There's a degree of comfort in running *the* DNS daemon, and we were doing it even though my organization is decidedly anti opensource. That speaks volumes.

Losers that want attention.

Losers that have no life outside the Internet.

Losers hoping against hope that someone gives a shit about the crap they write in their online journal.

Losers that think "HEY LOOK AT ME I'M SO SMART!"

or

"I'M SUCH A GREAT WRITER LOOK AT ME WRITE!".

Online Journals bring out the worst in the worst kinds of pathetic attention seeking losers.

The point of a journal is to be introspective and learn something about yourself.

Sharing it with the world is a pathetic sympathy bid for people who had mothers that didn't love them.

---EDITED Sept 22, 2003---

Summary of changes:

I added the word "STILL" to the Subject.
I also changed the way the text was formatted because I'm not posting from a web enabled cellphone anymore.
Changed "who's" to something proper.
Oh, and I've received 5 emails from people that have been smart enough to figure out my actual email address asking if I'd enable comments so they could say something, then went ahead and emailed their comments to me when I ignored their first email. I have no desire to read a bunch of loserish rants from people in love with themselves and their online journals. I do not exist to validate you.

And in general I still stand firmly behind every word.
