PLANNED IN-ADDR.ARPA NAMESERVER CHANGE
This is a courtesy notification of an upcoming change to the
nameserver set for the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone.
There is no expected impact on the functional operation of the DNS
due to this change.
There are no actions required by DNS server operators or end users.
For more information about this work, please see
The IN-ADDR.ARPA zone is used to provide reverse mapping (number
to name) for IPv4. The servers which currently provide authoritative
DNS service for the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone are as follows:
On Wednesday 2010-02-16 processing will begin to change the nameserver
set to the following, as described in RFC 5855:
A.IN-ADDR-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ARIN)
B.IN-ADDR-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by ICANN)
C.IN-ADDR-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by AfriNIC)
D.IN-ADDR-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by LACNIC)
E.IN-ADDR-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by APNIC)
F.IN-ADDR-SERVERS.ARPA (operated by RIPE NCC)
The usual IANA process for a change in the ARPA zone involves a
series of technical checks and the gathering of various authorisations,
and may take several days to complete.
Following this, the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone will be dropped from root
servers in two groups:
1. Week of 2011-02-21 -- 2011-02-25
B, C, E, G, I, M
2. Week of 2011-02-28 -- 2011-03-11
A, D, F, H, K, L
Individual root server operators will choose a time for the maintenance
within their respective window and follow their usual procedures
to carry out the change.
Courtesy notification will be sent to this list once this change
has been fully implemented.
Director DNS Operations
The APNIC policy proposal 94 allows an operator to put in for new
IPv4 space without having to renumber, if they can show that they've
used 80% of the space already obtained from their upstream.
That seems bad in two ways
1. It allows 19.99% of IPv4 space to be hoarded.
2. It probably encourages disaggregation, compared with
renumbering into this new block.
Could someone from TelstraClear's NOC or security team please contact me off-list.

Just an interesting new phase in Facebook with the new message system.
They've enhanced the message systems with a new mashup view, but also have turned on email for Facebook accounts.
A while ago they announced Facebook urls: facebook.com/eintellego
And in the last couple of days, when you turn on your new messaging system, they issue an email address related to your short-link above. So as of now I have the eintellego(a)facebook.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> address which can have email sent to it and replied.
Why is this important?
Well, this would be the first very direct shot across the bow at Google and will create, almost instantly a competitor to Gmail with a potential of 500 million users. That is quite interesting operationally to nznog members from a consideration perspective.
What we're about to see is a domain (facebook.com) with almost no users, turn into one of the biggest senders and receivers of emails world wide.
Immediate things that come to mind are the possible abuses of applications sending email on your behalf.
Worthy of discussion I think.
Btw… I am not saying this is good or bad… Just very interesting.

Apologies for the slightly off topic post - no conference mailing list
transpired so -
for those of you who are after a meal tonight, a few drinks and some
conversations - myself my partner and maybe a few other NOG people
will be at Daawat for a Curry tonight at 7:30.
88 Manners Mall, Wellington, New Zealand
If critical mass of people ensues then TNC rules will apply, for those
not familiar it's a order what you like and split the bill affair.
has more background; TNC and NZNog have traditional 'synergies' dating
back over some years and Daawat can handle a crowd on short notice.
Hope everyone had a great NOG and thanks muchly to the organizing peeps.
This is to notify you that one or more objects in which you are
designated for notification have been modified in the NZRR routing
These objects are used to configure the various NZIX route servers
(http://nzix.net/) so you can expect the relevant servers to be reloaded
in the near future. The reloading of the servers is staggered over a
period of time so that if you are peering with both servers at an
exchange, you can maintain at least one BGP session at all times and
consequently a full set of routes.

John Humphrey will now be straight after lunch (1:30pm) and the
afternoon speakers have all been bumped back 30 minutes (or so).
