Comment How much longer can DNS survive? (Score 1) 146

I wonder if having to keep tabs on all these TLDs that seem to be created by anyone who fancies it is putting a heirarchical system designed to accomodate at first only a few (then expanded to a few hundred for country domains) under strain at the root server level? Sure technology advances, but the design hasn't really changed and I wonder if its still suited.

An ironic comment given you're the one who seems to be checking constantly all his old threads and reply after a couple of hours whereas I check once every one or 2 days. You're coming across as a bit desperate, but hey, go smoke some pot and pay your girlfriend for some sex. Perhaps you can convince yourself you have a life.

"As you can see, I am not a "sorry little loser". "

So you say. More than likely you're a functioning pothead just holding on like a lot of functioning alcoholics. And the common trait of both is that neither recognise they have a problem.

They ruin their own lives. No one is forcing them to smoke weed.

If all you want is a quick solution to a problem then obviously online resources are far more convenient than flicking through the index of a book. However if you need to learn something from scratch you often really have to READ a lot about it first in a linear manner, and in that situation IMO a book is a lot more user friendly than scrolling around in a browser or pdf reader. But each to their own.
