Domain Name Server records When packet switching networks were first developed, addressing was exclusively numerical. With networks such as The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), there was little need for developing alternative methods as the number of participating nodes were limited. However, as the network expanded, it soon became evident that while using numerics was a very methodical approach, the addresses themselves proved increasingly hard for humans to memorize. The first solution was to distribute a file called ‘hosts.txt’ to all the nodes of the network, allowing them to map names to the addresses. A domain name can be separated into different entities, or labels, consisting of the top-level domain (.com) and at least one sub domain ( When you connect to a service running at, a query is sent using a resolver. By entering a domain name in the field above, you will get detailed information on the nameservers associated with a domain name.

Test du logiciel Yooda SeeUrank Bon, l’article d’aujourd’hui n’en ai pas vraiment un, vu que pour la première fois je vais presque faire un copier/coller d’un communiqué mais il y a au moins quatre bonnes raisons à ça : La loi Hamon va profondément modifier les obligations des e-commerçants et il est donc indispensable de diffuser au maximum ces nouvelles obligationsOn parle de points juridiques relativement précis, autant faire appel à un spécialiste pour ne pas diffuser de bêtisesLe communiqué de TrustedShops est super précis et très factuelLa loi Hamon va rentrer en application dès le 13 juin ! Soit dans 2 mois seulement Donc les infos ci dessous sont extraites d’un communiqué de presse envoyé par Trusted Shops, qui certifie des boutiques en ligne et qui grosso modo leur donne un « label » si elles respectent leurs obligations.

One planet, under wikipedia Google Maps displays geographic Wikipedia articles now! The map is marked with Ws representing wikipedia articles. The location of each W is determined by the latitute/longitude coordinates on the wiki page. It's kind of amazing how thoroughly wikipedia has colonized the world. In general, whenever I see an incredibly detailed, obscure wikipedia article, it sort of reminds me of how explorers must have felt when they found almost every corner of the earth inhabited. Wow. The problem with this particular application is that some Ws are big and some are small -- and the size seems to depend on the precision of the geotagging. Or maybe that's because the building is tagged in "cityscale" units? Update: Google seems to be following Wikipedia's own guidelines, which say (rather imprecisely) that locations should be tagged with a degree of precision appropriate to their size. Previously in mapped wikis... (Meanwhile, Yahoo maps continues not to integrate with Flickr.

Pretty much none whatsoever Han-Teng Liao recently inquired about the effects of the unblocking of the Chinese Wikipedia on the traffic volume directed to He may be as amazed as I am that the effect in terms of number of page requests has been pretty much none whatsoever. The following three charts each show the number of page requests to the Chinese Wikipedia over the course of months, each at a different level of aggregation. Looking at these charts I can’t see anything that signifies at which exact date the custodians of orderly synchronized opinion forming opened the gates to the world at large, a world where expressions of misalignment and self-righteousness are a constant danger. Note: monthly figures have been normalized to 30 days for better comparison: figure for January is 30/31 of actual value, for February 30/29, etc. One question leads to another: in the above chart with hourly page requests a few points stand out (marked with larger symbols).

Technology Review: Wikipedia and the Meaning of Truth With little notice from the outside world, the community-written encyclopedia Wikipedia has redefined the commonly accepted use of the word “truth.” Why should we care? Because ­Wikipedia’s articles are the first- or second-ranked results for most Internet searches. Type “iron” into Google, and Wikipedia’s article on the element is the top-ranked result; likewise, its article on the Iron Cross is first when the search words are “iron cross.” Google’s search algorithms rank a story in part by how many times it has been linked to; people are linking to Wikipedia articles a lot. This means that the content of these articles really matters. Many people, especially academic experts, have argued that Wikipedia’s articles can’t be trusted, because they are written and edited by volunteers who have never been vetted. These policies have become the social contract for Wikipedia’s army of apparently insomniac volunteers. So how do the Wikipedians decide what’s true and what’s not?
