Yesterday noon my time I rebooted my server. Things seemed to be slow.
Several streams were hanging or stopping, and because ethic.thought.org had
been up for 61 days I figured it wouldn't hurt to reinitialize stuff.
Well, nutshell, disaster. For hours it wasn't clear whether the server would
survive, but eventually i got a portupgrade -avOPk going and now I am close to
having every port rebuilt.
Now host kuow.org gives the the IP address of the U/Washington. Etc. last
night for unknown reasons even this failed. I remembered that late last fall
I was warned the "bind9" was nearing its end/life. I okayed the portupgrade
to remove bind9 and install whatever its follow up would be.
Since then, my kill9named script[s] and my restartnamed script[s] have failed.
Can anyone save me from hours of tracking down whatever I have to to put
Everything I get in trouble with this bind stuff it occurs how significant an
achievement it is to have a
service that automagically maps quad/dotted-decimals to actual words.
Sorry if this sounds disjoint; it is past time for a lollipop and a blanket
and a *nap*
