I'm kicking but it ain't helping. Interesting that the host ftp works.
It is also the last host in the zone. I tried tying the txt record to
the origin but no change. According to the Bind book, and to the openspf
folks, this should work.

pixelhammer.com.	IN	TXT	"some sorta krazy text string"

But it don't. Now, I am even more confused. Does the location of the
Text record 'within' the zone file make a difference?



Google finally, after 7 years, provided a logo for
