    yes Chris, this *is* the real Jim Rutt!!

    As to change, that's how we make progress, eh? While this new service will break some parasitic uses of the DNS, it will enable other stuff.

    When I was noodling just this idea (after leaving VRSN). I concluded that to mitigate the breakage, there should be a new TYPE defined that marks the record as a "wildcard". Thus a simple fix for spam-filters, search engines and the like. Don't know if this was done.

    Another thing I don't know is how much warning was given on the change.

    Hopefully, VRSN will maintain stability in the IP addresses and perhaps even "publish" the functionality as a web service.

    If nothing else, this will provide competition for the current browser-based monopoly. Though MSFT can easily program the next version of the browser to defeat it, if the service is clearly better than MSFTs lame approach, maybe they won't. There'll be competition for a while at least.

    ===================== been there, done that

    Arrogant, sure. A schmuck, though? Well, since I speak Yiddish, I'll have to deny that one.

    Then again, you're an anonymous coward, so I have a hard time taking you very seriously.

    Thanks for trolling, though. You made my day just that much more interesting.

    Regardless...

    The person posting as "jimrutt" makes simple spelling and grammar errors and exhibits opinions that seem contrary to published positions of the actual person. So I doubt his authenticity.
