Episode 12

In this episode, Matt and Cricket answer listener Paul Petersen’s question about how to register subdomains in country-code top-level domains around the world, and Ismael’s question about whether an RRSIG record’s signature validity can extend how long the signed RRset is cached.  (And if you understood that last part, you probably don’t need this podcast.)

In addition, Matt and Cricket talk about the latest news in DNS, including the signing of the root zone, which Matt knows all about, and the introduction of (and uproar over) Google’s Public DNS service.

Though Matt contributes most of the technical answers, Cricket does score a small coup by remembering that the late Frank Gorshin played the half-blackfaced/half-whitefaced Bele in the original Star Trek episode “Let This Be Your Last Battlefield.”

Episode 11

In Episode 11, Matt and Cricket manage to answer four (count ‘em, four!) questions – except that they don’t really know the answer to Paul Roberts’s question about forwarding and delegation.  However, in their own, inimitable style, they answer Yong Tak Ming’s question about forwarding, Samar’s question about how to configure his resolver so that he isn’t forced to type fully qualified domain names all the time, and Dirck Copeland’s questions about the Kaminsky vulnerability.  And if you stay till the bitter end, you’ll learn where Matt and Cricket got their starts in DNS and why Cricket’s never seen a World Series game.
