Yesterday was power failure day -- at least three. The upstream didn't have backup power on their routers either. Losers.
So I brought my box home, leaving me to struggle with non-authoritative DNS and trying to fix DNS for 16 domains I do primary DNS for as well as notify everyone I don't.
When I moved the box home, I separated the apache/mail box from the DNS box. Had I known the trouble this was going to cause, I probably wouldn't have done it, but...
There is also no reverse DNS for my boxes, which is causing sendmail to have "issues."
All this was made to work with the magic duct tape of name service, /etc/hosts. Grr.
