There's definitely going to be a lot of confusion. However, it could be argued that it is not DNS's job to enforce policy or create artificial scarcities in order to police abuse.

I don't see how adding one of 5 three letter extensions to a dns name does anything more than make peopel type more.
why can't mcdonalds own .mcdonalds any more or less than they own mcdonalds.com?

It's the same exact thing but less stupid.

no, no floppy drive. It's got an ethernet port and a usb port.
I thin I can use my treo as a usb drive, but I don't think I can
install a boot image on it.

If you've got an existing Linux box, you can convert a LiveCD/LiveDVD iso onto a bootable USB key...but your laptop has to have the ability, in its BIOS, to boot from a USB device.

I have a new problem.
I have a laptop, I just replaced the hard drive, and now I notice is has no cd rom drive with which to install new OS.
What to do?
I don't have an external cd rom drive. I don't have a usb drive, and this laptop probably wouln't boot it anyway. Suggestions?

Can you boot from a network device?

Harbard: Unless he sets up a PXE/TFTP server, how would he boot from the network?

So I borrowed an external USB cd rom drive.
Funny thing is windows 2000 install boots up but gets a blue screen of death because it can't find the boot drive.
XP gets it right. Haven't tried linux yet.
Thanks all.

Most Linuxes will install from bootable USB media if your computer supports it, no problem.

It would seem that if a webmaster is aware of a need to make their URL's short ... they would fix the problem not by building in a meta aliasing framework, but rather by simply *making* *them* *short* to begin with.

yeah.
And moaning... lets see... why aren't they whining about phone numbers? Phone numbers have been around a lot longer than urls, and whereas they used to be useful, when they included letters for location, the all number 10 digit sequence is pretty tinyurlish.

yes, I'm pretty happy to remember my own phone number plus some of the old style short ones still arround...but thats it.

I used to remember around 20 phonenumbers I frequently used before the ISDN times. (well... my parents just had a pulse dial phone, no way to store numbers ;-)

Everyone's got speed dial now, and a lot of people change phone numbers frequently enough that they're not worth remembering.

It's possible that in the future, phone numbers could go away completely and be replaced by SIP addresses, which look a lot like email addresses.

Are you ready for SPIT? (SPam over Internet Telephony)

Cute! He did a really good job. I'd have omitted the mini LCD screen and put in a touchpad, and made the touchpad emulate a KoalaPad. That would have been even cooler.

bwahahahaha.
they've finally come full circle and are now doing things the way we did in the 90's.

Wow, it's very surprising that they did this without using XML as the file format.

It would have been amusing if they used .INI file format :)

They're replacing the myriad of xml files they currently use now, and that's the point, I think they ARE using the ini file format.

Weird. XML is a bit richer in terms of what it can express (multiple levels of nesting, etc) as well as more machine-readable. As everyone knows, I'm no fan of making everything XML, but I can't see why this one would need to get switched back to something else.
