Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

This topic deals with an entry I found in /var/log/messages:

Jan 11 09:14:19 ns named[91]: Lame server on 'desstats.distributed.net' (in 'DISTRIBUTED.NET'?): [207.158.192.40].53 'NS.NAMESERVERS.net': learnt (A=195.8.99.11,NS=128.8.10.90)

In short, it means that your name server was told that that a given name server would contain information about a given domain.  But it didn't.  It is, in short, a DNS configuration error with somebody elses domain.

I found a very good explanation of this message by Greg Lehey in the FreeBSD mailing list archives.
