For those that expect to see major code additions I have to disappoint you. Development is stalled on a project for my dad, which i hope to have done by mid-March. I also had to shuffle a lot of computers around at home in order to make electricity savings. That shuffle is pretty much done. I'm craving for doing additions to delphinusdnsd though and this spring when it commences will be great. A damper to that will be a new job but I haven't been accepted to any outstanding resumes, so my hopes aren't very high on that.0 comments
According to this article which has deeper hyperlinks linking to here, the EU is planning on providing DNS infrastructure for everyone. This is similar to efforts of government taking back the Internet from corporations. As you may recall telephone access fees became a lot more affordable when corporations built the Internet which surpassed the POTS (plain old telephone network). It was a fight between ITU and corporations that united in a great big network, the Internet. The corporations won, but government wants it back because they realised that communications is control over citizens. What they plan on doing is also building an extensive filtering system into their DNS system. This provides opportunity to be abused by government for censorship, for corruption. Delphinusdnsd isn't related to this project and I'm glad I don't have to lift a finger to help the government see this through. It's just disgusting though, and I wanted to make DNS enthusiasts aware of this. Yes it is political.0 comments
As I sit here in my parents living room, and drinking coffee, I wish you a: Happy New Year 2022. May you have a great year ahead of you!0 comments
I have tagged the tree to 1.6.0. It was the first time doing it with git I think and it was uneventful and just worked. Please consult the CHANGES file to see what changed. It makes no sense to run anything below 1.6.0 unless you have custom hacks that need to be ported first. Enjoy and have a happy solstice, christmas and new year!0 comments
I have put delphinusdns.org back on my servers since Ricardo's server was down for a full week. I have still left him as a mirror site from this blog. I hope he's not too sad, I'm very happy he helped me out, but I guess the downed server was a message that I'd have to take my baby back.0 comments
Here is the current APEX of the zone delphinusdns.org as queried with dig any delphinusdns.org @pod.delphinusdns.org (pod is one of the nameservers of delphinusdns.org). I also ran this through a grep -v RRSIG since those are machine like signatures that serve no real human purpose.

Pirata is away and the website isn't working so I feel that I should take control again and give people something to let you know that we're not gone. Sorry for disappearing a while ago. The official website is still on pirata's site which leads you to the GITHUB. There you can download and clone delphinusdnsd.
We're still on track for a delphinusdnsd 1.6.0 release in mid December 2021.
Your friendly DNS programmer, Peter.0 comments
Before I start programming on another thing, I'd like to understand what I'm
doing. So it happens to be that I've been studying RFC 1876. With a possibly
slight learning disability this was hard to decipher, but I've finished with
some notes. Here they are
So it may very well be that I'll start writing LOC support into delphinusdnsd in the future.0 comments
This fixes the compiling on OpenBSD-current (which had enabled -fno-common by default in it compiler going forward). There is no other fix since the botched and little tested 1.5.1 release. OS's this was tested on were: OpenBSD-6.9-beta/arm64, OpenBSD-6.8/amd64, FreeBSD/amd64, NetBSD/amd64 and Linux on amd64. Enjoy!0 comments
