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.

29 August 1998
One of the problems I had when installing FreeBSD 2.2.7 on the new 5G disk was getting local names to resolve.  For details on my original excursion into this arena, please refer to the above link.  This time, all I need to do is reinstate the zone files from my diary and things should work.

That shouldn't take very long [he said at 9:09 pm]

At 10:46 pm, the gateway started working again.  Fully.  Properly.  In total.

I didn't spend all of that time on the DNS issue.  I typed in the zone file by hand.  But found that names did not resolve.  So I went off to the lounge to eat some pizza, drink some beer, and watch The All Black play the Wallabies in Sydney for the Bledisloe Cup Final.

When I returned during half time, I found that I'd typed my domain name incorrectly in some of the zone files.  Bummer.  I fixed that and everything resolved.
