12:33 pm - any of you other tech geeks (Lisa, Dave, I'm looking at you) noticed...
That most of the GTLD-SERVERS.NET farm is down?  About 90% of them.  k, c, and I think m are working, but most of the rest are completely dead - respond to no digs for any domains whatsoever.  It's playing havoc with a lot of my customers who aren't running their own nameservers, because any DNS stuff that isn't cached by their ISP is working erratically if at all for them at this point.  The average DNS response time from the root servers for non-cached domains is over 4 seconds real right now, and really busy DNS boxes - like those handling thousands of customers for an ISP - tend to just give up on anything that takes more than 750ms or so at the outside.

Verisign needs to get its shit straight. =\

hey this is weird; earlier when i was home i was getting a response (but no ANSWER -- just a referral to the appropriate NS's, per SOP,) from a.gtld-servers.net but now that i'm at work:

[root@smtp1 root]# dig google.com @a.gtld-servers.net

; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> google.com @a.gtld-servers.net
;; global options: printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
[root@smtp1 root]# dig google.com @b.gtld-servers.net

; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> google.com @b.gtld-servers.net
;; global options: printcmd

I'm not getting JACK from a through g....haven't tried the others....could they be set to do iterative lookups instead of recursive?

I've been pissing around with this shit with several different backbones, with varying results.

Alltel.net: gets instant, perfect responses from all GTLD-SERVERS... but has a routing problem between it and assertivenetworks.net (the massive datacenter where the bsdwiki is hosted).

Time Warner Roadrunner, Nuvox.net, Bellsouth.net: get varying (mostly fucked up) responses from the GTLD-SERVERS, but route through to assertivenetworks.net fine.

Assertivenetworks.net: clearly can route to itself (and the rest of the internet), cannot route to Alltel.net, gets fucked up responses from most of the GTLD-SERVERS.

Over the internet, I have the patience to Google translate.

In person, I'd probably just bite you and hope for the best. ;)

Sometimes google translations can mess you up further, or just make you laugh your ass off all day. One of Rob's bosses decided to paste his entire french office memo into an auto translator. Rob sent it to me by email later that day. It went something like:

The usage briefcases did to have meaning for office parts of the meeting...

This guy was a VP.

Oh yeah, it even mangled up your one short sentence of Italian pretty badly... google translate isn't for "providing a flawless translation", it's for "getting some kind of gibberish you can probably make the sense of, with a bit of effort." =)

If you think it does weird things translating back and forth between Romance languages, you should see what it does to something ENTIRELY different, like Japanese.
