SBS Podcast Team,
thanks for putting this new podcast together and working to continually refine it. Having some volume mixing control will help. I listened to it yesterday on my X5 (Dell Axim that is, not BMW) while driving with the family and arguing about what volume the radio should be at so as not to interfere with my listening to your podcast or my daughter's listening to her mp3's. Maybe the ultimate solution is built in headsets for each passenger in the car!
I seem to have a problem getting ipodder (http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/abstract/index.php) to recognize your rss 2.0 and atom 0.3 feed xml files. I looked at them myself and I don't see any reference to the mp3 in those xml files. Let me know if there is a solution, that way I and others can automate receipt of our weekly update (hopefully you will keep them coming) with ipodder.
Also I wanted to clarify something that you inadvertently may have confused when you were discussing the issue with respect to the EU and ICANN and DNS. It should be clarified that the root name servers and the TLD name serves are, as I think you folks know, two different things. There are 13 root name servers around the world (for the "." that never appears to the right of the TLD, but is implied) whose IP addresses are hardcoded. Here is a nice explanation in the wikipedia:
These root servers are generally under the control of ISP's, and 7 of the 13 are located in the U.S. The aforementioned wikipedia article lists the operators of the rooter nameservers. The fact that so many of the root name servers are located in the US has been an issue in the past with non-us users/managers of the Internet. These root name servers, in turn point to the TLD name servers
The next level DOWN from the root name servers are the TLD (com, net, mil, edu, gov... and the country suffixes as well like, au, il,...) name servers. These name servers are under the control of designated entities, (not neseccarily the same as those who operate the root nameservers) an their counterparts who administer the TLD's. In your remarks you seemed to imply that the TLD servers were the root servers. That is NOT the case. We all know that ICANN is no stranger to controversy and, in part, because it operates under the auspices of the US Government, is not so well regarded by our counterparts in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. Having said that, now that you all have made me aware of some new controversy that is somehow related to the root servers and/or, (more likely) the TLD servers, I will check it out myself. In case you are not aware, there is an organization to which I have belonged since its earliest days, called the "Internet Society " (ISOC-www.isoc.org) to which I beleive anyone associated with this Internet should belong.
Let me close by mentioning that the chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) to which I belong, the ISSA-Nova (www.issa-nova.org), in the Washington DC area, will be having its monthly chapter meeting in November 2005, focused on DNS security and, for that event we will have a recognized expert on DNS and DNS security, Steve Crocker, as our guest speaker. We invite guests to register as guest members of the ISSA and attend our meetings, and if they decide to join our association and chapter, so much the better. Sometimes we even hold our events at Microsoft's Reston, Va facilities!
