The Life and Times of AX.PE

I never really had a true plan for AX.PE, like really I did not. I’ve been doing things with it for a while now but nothing of real interest.

It seems now that I have found a little pet project for it, I discovered Known. Having read up about it, and being particularly interested in the social media sharing part (since I won’t have to be stuck in the Facebook endless loop), I decided to go for it.

However, it appears that they may have omitted some pertinent information about the whole connecting to anti-social medias. Ya gotta pay. And actually while writing this post and getting lost in the documentation, it appears that it ain’t a thing any more.

Which severely changes the tone of this particular post, if I can figure out how to get it to communicate with the social networks, then it’ll be a good thing. If I can’t then, really it won’t replace what’s already happening here. WordPress does all the graft and I don’t need to Tweet.

It is quite light weight on the eyes, so I’ll still give it a play around and see what happens.

BBS.yt – a free dynamic dns domain

Being a cold parisien night and holding a tiny bit of cash in my wallet, I decided to do a troll of what domains were available.

One term I like to search is BBS, because I also run a BBS, incidentally while writing this I totally got side tracked and connected to a few BBSes from Telnet BBS Guide.

Anyways, I registered bbs.yt and immediately put it up on Afraid.org’s Free DNS Project because you shouldn’t need a domain to put up a BBS and it would be nice to have a BBS focused domain to do that.

There are many software packages you can use, either at home or in the cloud.

So if you would like to be a part of this project, you can set up your own .bbs.yt subdomain right here.

Changes to Reverse DNS and Server Names

Nothing I do enjoy more on a Sunday is to get my DNS on. More so this weekend, when I originally registered ec.je*, I wanted it to be my main domain for everything. Not so much front end, but back end.

Since I’ve not really had a lot of time to deal with anything lately, it has taken some time to get in on cleaning up my horrendous zone files and get the rDNS going to the correct place.  Finally I have and it’s wünderbar !

I’ve had the opportunity to finally rename most of my servers under the ec.je domain, anything that exchanges mail it going under a .mx.ec.je, anything that is a proper fixed mail server is under .mail.ec.je and at that point I got lost.  You see I have non mail servers, web servers, or strange servers that do mysterious things.  Do I put these under .srv.ec.je, do I think of something more, epic, like .web.ec.jeilluminati.ec.je ?  I’m looking for suggestions and I could think that anybody here on the LiveJournal could really give me an idea.

I’m totally open to suggestions here, just let I know in the comments, and potentially you could be forever engraved in to the ec.je zone file.

* I also registered cw.nf, but that is for free web hosting.
