00:58 <ec> FUCK
00:58 <ec> Zerigo is shutting down, in TWO DAYS, without notifying me
00:59 <jfhbrook> that's pretty insane ec
00:59 <ec> frantically rushing to export my data,
00:59 <jfhbrook> who are you switching to? do you know?
00:59 <jfhbrook> two days is outrageous
00:59 <ec> they suggest a ‘sync to Route 53’ option, which requires Amazon to activate my account — takes who knows how long,
01:00 <ec> googled around for scripts to use their API to dump, looks like maybe they already shut down API access (getting UNAUTHORIZED no matter what I do),
01:00 <ec> arghaegrdhtfjygu
01:00 <ec> I only found out by accident!
01:00 <ec> I'm leaving town soon and wanted to set up a VPN and dynamic DNS so I can backup via Time Machine when I'm in Alaska over the next few months,
01:00 <ec> and I was looking to see if my long-time DNS provider had dynamic-DNS support, and BOOM
01:00 <ec> http://zerigo.com
01:00 <jfhbrook> jesus
01:01 <jfhbrook> how many domains do you have?
01:01 <jfhbrook> can you realistically do it by-hand in a day?
01:01 <ec> idk couple hundred
01:01 <ec> nah not that many, maybe a hundred
01:04 <jfhbrook> >_<
01:36 _whitelogger joined
01:38 <ljharb> that's a lot of domains
01:38 <ljharb> i think i have like 40
01:40 <jfhbrook> I have, uh, 2 now
01:41 <jfhbrook> jesusabdullah.net and trashfire.xyz
01:41 <jfhbrook> I'm gonna let one of those lapse pretty soon
01:41 <ec> trashier lmao
01:41 <ec> I love that you say ‘one of those’
01:41 <ec> can't decide which to stick with, jf? :P
01:41 <jfhbrook> nah nah
01:41 <jfhbrook> trashfire is just a great url
01:41 <jfhbrook> like it's not as good as trashfi.re would have been but that's ok
01:44 <jfhbrook> trashfire.xyz is currently a broken hack project so I'm gonna just like, host my personal site on there
01:44 <jfhbrook> except probably turn it into a wiki
01:45 <ec> AHHH ALL OF MY EMAIL IS GOING TO HELL
02:27 <ec> MY GODDAMN REGISTRAR DOESN'T SUPPORT GLUE RECORDS EXCEPT BY MANUALLY HANDLING THE SETUP OVER E-MAIL
02:27 <ec> AND THEY'RE IN NEW ZEALAND,
02:27 <ec> AND THEY DON'T HAVE A PHONE-NUMBER
02:28 <jfhbrook> idk what a glue record is
02:29 <ec> hack that solves the chicken-n-egg scenarios in DNS
02:29 <ec> it's only relevant for nameservers resolving other nameservers
03:04 <ec> AHHHHH THIS IS SUCH A CLUSTERFUCK
03:09 <ljharb> yeah wtf is a glue record
03:15 <ec> I'm the only person who knows this?
03:15 <ec> wow, that's a shock
03:16 <ec> ljharb: if your domain's nameservers are subdomains of the domain itself, you need additional ‘glue records’ at the TLD nameserver
03:16 <jfhbrook> I've mostly dealt with a records and cnames
03:16 <ec> sooooo if you have ljharbis.cool., and the nameservers are listed as ns1.ljharbis.cool. and ns2.ljharbis.cool.,
03:17 <ec> then DNS needs the cool. rootservers to *actually hold the IPs* for ns1.ljharbis.cool. etc, and they need to match what the servers at ns1.ljharbis.cool. hold for "ns1.ljharbis.cool."
03:17 <jfhbrook> you're hosting your own nameservers?
03:17 <jfhbrook> I thought you were using route 53
03:18 <ec> lol, obscuring the nameserver records — so-called “white-label nameservers”
03:18 <ec> so elliottcable.name, for instance, shows a.ns.yreality.net, instead of grsgtgnoh.angrsns516-awsdns525.fuckboy or whatever

04:04 <ljharb> ah gotcha
04:05 <ljharb> lol, .fuckboy
05:00 _whitelogger joined
05:48 <ec> ljharb.fuckboy
05:48 <ec> come at me
05:48 <ec> buying that TLD brb
08:55 <pikajude> yo
08:55 <pikajude> who up
08:55 <pikajude> :b:
08:55 <pikajude> darn
10:25 mylesborins joined
16:31 <jfhbrook> lots of fun: typing 'whois fuckboy' into the terminal
16:31 <jfhbrook> probably less fun: curling the results
16:31 <pikajude> i love curling
16:31 <pikajude> it's such an accessible sport
16:44 <jfhbrook> never tried it
16:44 <pikajude> me neither
