Paging anyone from

Is anyone from on here? You're pointing DNS at me for some reason. That zone ( isn't in our system. Your NS looks odd too, * and .nl? Is that legit? I don't know what it was before because I've never looked, but that seems off.


nevermind, I'm tired and confused with Just going to wildcard * to and go back to sleep.


I did think about replying, saying "Just to be clear, this isn't about"

What I did learn though there are a lot of people configuring their NTP with servers that are identical to the legitimate * names, except they're mistyping ntpd instead of ntp. Enough to generate >2Gbps worth of query traffic (pointed at a DNS server with a 1gbps interface).

I have to admit I'm kind of curious how many unique clients that would be if I answered back with a working IP address instead of localhost.

If the folks who registered are OK with it, we'd be happy to
take that domain over and do right by it.
