I wish everybody a very good 2007! For PowerDNS, it certainly has been a very good year.
In some (large) places, the Recursor now commands a 40% market share, while the authoritative server is also expanding its user base around the world, with multi-million domain deployments now no longer as newsworthy as they once were.
The Chaos Computer Club held its annual congress last week, and they chose the PowerDNS Recursor to provide the DNS service to go with their 10 gigabit connection. I’m pleased to report that the PowerDNS process was fired up only once, and that it held steady for the entire congress, with no complaints. This would usually not be that strange, but the CCC clientèle are among the most critical internet users to be found on the planet.
Many thanks to Stefan Schmidt and other CCC admins for their vote of confidence!
I’m working on understanding ‘Ruby on Rails’, which will probably end up as a HOWTO aimed at seasoned programmers. The internet abounds with “you won’t believe how easy Ruby on Rails is” demonstrations, but the hard truth is that below the surface, a lot of magic is happening. The kind of magic the discerning programmer wants to grasp so as to make the most of it.
A very small start to this HOWTO can be found here.
It may also allow experience programmers to teach themselves Ruby in less time than it would take them to read a 750 page book.
