Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

  • From what I can gather, the problem is something to do with's nameserver not delgating correctly.
    dig @
    Works fine

    Paul Makepeace is on the problem as sorting it out. Have faith that it will be resolved.

    Sorry for the Delay.

  • ns through are all sending malformed DNS responses.  Any sane DNS server will reject such malformed packets.

    twilde@manganese:~$ dig +short
    ;; Warning: Message parser reports malformed message packet.

    That way gets the address, but my caching server won't accept the malformed responses to give me DNS - any version of BIND will exhibit that behavior.  Track down the malformed responses and it should work fine.
  • it'd be infinitely more efficient to email me or than to write about it here. :-)

      - ask

    -- ask bjoern hansen [], !try; do();

    • I thought that Paul Makepeace was sorting it out and talking to Anyway, Wayne has been busy and this is all about a lack of communication hence my journal post.
