    I'll give this a try... The new aspect of this is that a PRS (personal
    root server) is running on your PC (personal computer). The cpu
    doesn't have to be anything more than what you're running now
    because the service is for only one customer... the PC ....
    A small 120 gig disk can easily take care of all the zone information
    which will be supplied by your PRS subscription. The PRS subscription
    will download to your PC the complete factored zone data...that's
    the www.domain.com = for all the sites that you
    want. For all you technical people that's all the A records and MX records
    from all the nameservers of all the domains found in the zones that
    are of worthy interest. The subscription service will have to do
    a lot of work to compile all these A records, but that's why it's
    a subscription. If your PC has say 150,000,000 A records and MX records
    that point to all the domain.com www.domain.com IP addresses that
    you want for your internet pleasure that's not a very big file on
    systems of today (maybe only 5 gigs of compressed database).
    The only part that needs to be downloaded from your PRS subscription
    is the part that changed in the last day or so. I'm not sure why
    I'm talking about this on a public board. I'm starting my PRS subscription
    service today.... let me know when the PRS software is ready for
    all to get this revolution moving. I guess you may call this the "distributed
    root" as opposed to the "centralized root". Nobody can stop this from
    happening. The root zones only contail A records of the nameservers
    themselves. All the real useful A records will come from the thousands
    of nameservers that would have to be polled to extract the IP addresses
    for all the other sub sub domains. One question? How many A records are
    there within the total internet today? Even if it's a billion or two that's
    still within the very fast growing storage of our ever increasing disk
    space. And I personally would not want the 80% of the current internet
    that is not useful anyway.
