comment bind: what is the zonefile SOA RR grammar?
Oh, yes! I had read about the use of () for multi-line editing. Simply, I hadn't properly connected the dots (too brain tired after many days of searching and reading). Their strange use completely confused me. Thanks for clarifying that last point. Blessings. :)

comment bind: what is the zonefile SOA RR grammar?
My zone file seems to be working now. At last! One thing that still bothers me a little is that, comparing the two examples I posted above, in the first one, the email address is placed before the parenthesis, and in the other one, after the opening parenthesis. Thanks again for the answer. +1.

comment bind: what is the zonefile SOA RR grammar?
@Ward: I did find the RFC. It's in the list of links in my question. I read it but didn't understand it. I couldn't make the parallel between what I read there and some of the sample zone file out there. It's easy to use google when you know exactly what you're looking for. I have used google extensively, but obviously, didn't know enough to query with the right key words. And that's why I came here. I thought this was a Q&A web site. But I am apparently blamed for not knowing what you know: so I wonder: what's the use of this site, if I cannot ask without being downvoted?

And besides, I didn't post: "Please, set up my name server for me". I posted a very specific, non-argumentative question on an on-topic technical definition that had been puzzling me for a while. I searched, searched a lot, but I am only guilty of not finding. Please explain the down vote.

@Ward: please define "(not) looked hard enough". It's been 4~5 days I'm trying to learn how to set up a name server & configure bind9 manually. I have literally dozens of web browser windows each with around a dozen tabs opened. And this is the first time I am asking for help. You can call me newbie, dim-witted, slow-learner, (all true) but "not trying hard enough" certainly does not apply to me. In all my browsing in the last few days, I have not come across a page like the one you point to, which indeed explains things much better than what I have read so far. So thanks for the link.

comment How to remove the cgi script name from the URI (apache, mod_rewrite)?
The second rewrite rule is necessary so that the proper script handler is called. This is done server side and the user is none the wiser. The first rewrite rule is just in case the user accesses the path with the actual script handler, in order to redirect to the shorter URL (as written in the browser location bar).

comment How to install Perl module Crypt::OpenSSL::AES?
Thank you. That looks very interesting. I already have a working system so I am not going to break it now, but I bookmarked your page and will try it next time I have a similar need.
