|| ||MaraDNS is another DNS offering|
|| ||Sun, 19 Jan 2003 07:29:57 -0600 (CST)|
I have been working on MaraDNS for nearly two years
now. A 1.0 release was released over six months ago,
and I am currently working on a 1.2 release. MaraDNS
is both an authoritative and recursive DNS server, is
written with security in mind, and the 1.0 release is
public domain; the 1.2 release will be released under
a simple BSD license.
Unlike PowerDNS, it has recursive DNS and is free.
Unlike Oak DNS, it is written in C which is both
high-performance and portable. In fact, MaraDNS is
twice as fast as BIND and three times as fast as
TinyDNS for fetching authoritative DNS records.
It would seem that I am not marketing MaraDNS well
enough, since your editors seem to be ignorant of its
More information is at http://www.maradns.org/
Please keep my email address private; I am getting
enough spam as it is.

|| ||Lessig laughs after 52 hours reading a humorous interview with Mickey
|| ||Sat, 18 Jan 2003 13:02:53 -0800|
While reading Professor Lessig's blog I stumbled across this: Reason Online
has interviewed Mickey Mouse and
"Disney's cartoon rodent speaks out on the Eldred decision."
Mickey's interview includes such jewels such as: "Q: How does it feel
to have your sentence extended by two decades?" -- "A: How do you
think it feels? For almost 70 years, I've only been allowed to do what
the Disney people say I can do. ... " and "In 1971, for instance,
Dan O'Neill got me a part in something called Air Pirates Funnies. It
was great: I got to have sex, I got to use drugs, I got to explore the
whole underground comix scene. It was liberating."
Mickey goes on to discus Disney's lawyers enforcing the laws that Walt
Disney broke when he started it all. Lest we not forget that Steamboat
Willie -- Mickey's original name -- was a direct parody of Buster Keaton's
Steamboat Bill, right down to the opening music, or The Brothers
Grimm who originally authored such jewels as: Rapunzel, Hänsel
und Gretel, Cinderella, Little Snow-white, and Rumpelstiltskin.
(Not having children, I'm not sure if Disney plagiarized all of these or
just some of them.)
