DynDNS.com Acquires EveryDNS

The-Pheon Re:As a current free DynDNS user... (125 comments)

EveryDNS is more like the "custom DNS" feature in DynDNS which uses their servers to provide nameservers for your own domain. DynDNS's custom DNS service is $30/year if you aren't hosting with them, while EveryDNS is/was free.

ThatIP only charges $10/year for the same "custom DNS", and now started doing dedicated ipv6 nameservers too!

I've long been immensely frustrated that you can't get kernel-space ZFS (sorry FUSE) compiled into a Linux kernel because of inane licensing issues*....

Well it is a good thing FreeBSD does not have a restrictive license like that. FreeBSD 8.0 will have ZFS with zpool 13, and here is how to use it.

The memristors made in April were 50 nm wide
