Chicago-area full-stack web developer. Working for a variety of small companies, usually as the sole programmer and sysadmin, I do everything from OS installation and configuration to application development, including the server-side and client-side components.

As of late (2013) my preferred environment is Ruby on Rails, which I love for the cleanliness of Ruby syntax and the wealth of community-contributed gems available. Previously I've worked in Java, PHP and Perl, and I continue to maintain applications in those languages.

comment spamming domain registrar with multiple host records, same IP
voretaq7: yes, exactly. Some of these hosts don't even exist anymore, and are commented out in the real nameserver.

That's what I've asked him to do (delete the records); he's just going to want to know why, as he'd likely consider it a convenience that all his machines are registered at the registrar, where he can edit them with a web form, and not in some icky complicated name server he has to ask me for help with!

comment spamming domain registrar with multiple host records, same IP
These aren't "A" records, but hosts registered at the registrar level. They show up in "whois", while ordinary host records don't, and I believe they may be part of the massive root zone file that's distributed to the root nameservers. I'll add an example at the end of the original post...
