Working on new feature for worldOutline.root, documenting as I code.
When I was ready to announce it to the mail list, I put the cursor on the top headline of the changenote and clicked the Blorkmark button.
A dialog appeared, suggesting a random unused name.
Instead, I entered a more descriptive one.
Saved the outline.
Before posting it to the mail list, I realized I had the perfect spot for it in the code, so I pasted it in there before releasing the new feature.
Here's the post, and here are the docs.
We used to think of domain names as scarce, but that's wrong. DNS is a very robust scalable naming system. Of course, the Internet itself is built on it.
Each domain can have an unlimited number of sub-domains. I've asked experts, and while there are, of course, practical limits, there are no theoretical ones.
You can think of a sub-domain as if it were the name of a file, and the domain as the name of a folder.
BTW, we've built a simple front-end for the dnsimple.com API. Works great. And they're great people to work with.
Posting this for friends in the DNS world.
