Re: Fwd: The Root has got an A record
I am sorry if you feel annoyed by this, but c.public-root.com, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, IP 220.127.116.11 e.public-root.com, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, IP 18.104.22.168 f.public-root.com, Terre Haute, Indiana, USA, IP 22.214.171.124 g.public-root.com, Chicago, Illinois, USA, IP 126.96.36.199 h.public-root.com, Des Moines, Iowa, USA, 188.8.131.52 operate in north america, in your network. So do their customers. It is you who will be annoyed if anything goes wrong because of this misbehaviour. I do not recommend using the public-root right now. I do warn because of obvious technical problems. I dont know what happens if '.' suddenly has a valid ip address. I have not written windows. I dont know what Bill Gates does. My linux did complain. That is how I did find it in the first place. And I know for shure '.' was not meant to have an ip address. What can go wrong will go wrong. I have seen enough queries for '.local' and for 'localhost' on the root-servers. Jon Lewis wrote:

Better /dev/null the rest of nanog too because I am afraid there will raise issues because of this. So, if you really dont care ...
