Would you call this a "wooden DNS table"?



  • Noticed this calendar posted in the office...

    Hmmm... Must be a low-profile publishing company... can't even afford a domain name!

    Wooden DNS Tables?



  •  I wonder if they get a high ranking in Google...



  • FUCK YOU COMMUNITY SERVER!  I had the post written and went to preview and it redirected to http://forums.thedailywtf.com/forums/ FUCK YOU.

    How ironic:

    The following error has occurred: <font class="warn">dns_server_failure:</font>

    Your request could not be processed because an error occurred contacting the DNS server.

    Here's what I get if I try to go through my proxy in my home:

    CGIProxy Error


    Couldn't find address for edkolis.exofire.net: Connection timed out

    I'm not sure whose DNS/whois you used to get that tidbit. I can't even guess what typo you made which let you think the IP has anything to do with the IRS. This is what I get:

  • Ah, now that I can see the image..

    I can see the execs sitting around trying to think of a domain name.

    #1: "Well, what should our domain be?  Something related to our company."

    #2: "OOHHH I KNOW how about ourcompany.com?"

    #1: checks "that's taken, but I like it.  Give me more."

    #2: "How about just company.com?"

    #1: checks "darnit that's registered.  Isn't there a way that you can host a website without a domain name?  Let's try that.  THE EXEC HAS SPOKEN!"

    Although it seems like a WTF, it actually makes the website immune from DNS cache poisoning (Though I'm sure it would of course still be susceptible to a MITM attack, redirecting the traffic at a specific hop).  I have seen quite a few US Government publications that list the actual IP rather than a domain name.
