What fun from a Macintosh SE

  I beg to differ. Technically, my domain, conman.org, only has one host,
swift.conman.org. I also defined the following "names:"


  as CNAMEs pointing to swift.conman.org. NS1 for domain registration
purposes (it just makes it easier to deal) and LISTS *was* intended to
separate the mailing lists I run (like I'm ever going to get another server
just for the mailing lists). The others, WWW, LITERATURE, BIBLE and BOSTON
are all websites (with WWW.conman.org being the same site as just
CONMAN.ORG). I'm actually surprised at how few sites actually take
advantage of multiple hostnames for portions of their website.

  Heck, I went completely overboard with the zonefile for conman.org; I'm
sure I'm one of the very few people with acurrate HINFO, RP, WKS and LOC
records (along with SRV records---why not?).
