I set up my client Chris with DNS on his server so he can handle DNS
himself and went through the trouble of re-registering his domains to use
his server for primary, and his hosting company for secondary.
But it seems that his hosting company, being a Microsoft Solutions
Company that it is, uses Microsoft for everything, including DNS.
And the Microsoft DNS server can't (or won't, which amounts to the same
thing really) do secondary DNS. And of course they add primary records with
the wrong IP address for his domains.
That kind of defeats the purpose of them handing secondary DNS if they
can't query my client's DNS server for the info.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
