My Take on DNSSEC – Part 3: How to configure it in BIND (cancelled)


Just as a quick note here:

I originally planned to do my third part on DNSSEC with configuration hints using the popular DNS server BIND. At the moment I also use BIND for my setup.

Now I discovered the “Advanced Secuity Notifications” at ISC, which sells prior warnings about security issues in BIND. Personally, I don’t want to support this model.

Instead I am currently migrating to another DNS server implemenation, YADIFA, which I will then write about. But first I need to check my setup using this server.

The Company Strikes Back & Return of the Notebook

For some time now, I haven’t been writing here. But since I was asked how the story about my notebook ended, I thought I should post an update here. Yes, I got my notebook back. It’s been three month now, that I have been using it, and everything seems to be fine. I wasn’t sure about that, when I received the package, so I documented every step of unboxing. 😉

A new hope


It looks like the DHL managed to pull my notebook back out of the lava pit it fell into. I received a mail from Lenovo that my notebook was returned to them, due to a wrong address. I phoned them and they sent it again.

Whatever happened to my Notebook?

Last year, around the end of March, I bought my new Laptop. I wanted a small device with a 11inch screen but with still a bit of punch so I was looking for a 4th generation i5 or i7 and 8GB of ram at least. I was searching for some time and all I came up with was the Apple MacBook Air 11. Ethically I can’t support buying Apple devices, so this was no real option, though I was damn near buying one nonthetless.

Mainboardtausch – Status

Nachdem ich im Dezember schonmal von meinem kaputten Mainboard geschrieben habe, hier mal das Update wie es um den Service steht: Ich bin mir sicher, dass der Servicepartner vor Angst schlottert. Schon die zweite automatische Mahnung. Das einzige was ich auch diesem System erfahre ist, dass wohl um 4:30 der Cron-Job die automatischen Mahnungen erzeugt. Sicherlich gibt es einen Grund warum ein Mainboard nach über einem Monat noch nicht repariert ist, aber dann wäre es auch schön, den zu erfahren.
