Amen.

DNS & mailman, oh my

Spent several hours today wrestling with DNS and mailman. The goal was to consolidate my DNS onto one machine which would then serve to my hosting company's name servers; this has been years in coming, and I finally had all my pins lined up. All went well, except for a weird glitch in the public-facing name servers which ended up disagreeing on some domains. Boiiiinnggg went some mail...

Then it was mailman's turn. I decided to use Debian's mailman install, which worked fine except for some of the standardized yet esoteric places they place config files. /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py, anyone?

Next up: exim4 and virtual domain hosting.

I'm getting too old for this sh*t.

rsync.net

John, of JohnCompanies.com (my hosting provider), is starting a new service; I betcha can guess what it does from the name ;). Go check it out.
