Slashdot has reported that Verisign will begin making updates to the DNS system every few SECONDS instead of twice per day, starting September 8th. This is HUGE news for us involved in the web hosting/design business as it makes domain name registrations and name server changes almost instantaneous. According to the FAQ posted on Verisign’s site, the average time required for a change to propagate will be reduced from 18 hours to something in the neighborhood of five minutes.

I can’t recall if I blasted Verisign for the wildcard DNS entry a year or so ago when they started that crap, but either way, this is major points for Verisign from me and all my domains!

I’m back. Back online. Back to work on the web. Back to the real world!

So now I’m left with the daunting task of getting caught up on everything I’ve missed. Tech news, friend’s blogs, email and Gmail. I’ve been checking my primary and Gmail accounts almost daily via one of Bonnie’s roommate’s laptop so I’m not too far behind on that. Although when Time Warner got me hooked up today I checked my mail to find FIFTY SIX comment spams. This is getting ridiculous. Now the plugins I have installed prevent you from EVER seeing any of this, but I still must go through the process of selecting the comments in my moderation interface and flagging them as spam so that the IP’s get registered as naughty. What I need now is a plugin that will automatically delete those comments. Maybe Kitten has that already…

House stuff is moving right along. Getting a little more finished everyday. Hopefully in another week the upstairs living area of the house will look complete and I can get started down here in my “playpen” as Bonnie has dubbed it.

I’m still without a connection and haven’t decided if it was me or Time Warner who has their wires crossed up. Back online sometime Thursday between 1 and 3 pm. Hang in there and regular posting will resume on wantmoore.com.
