Some mail domains that cant get accounts 2005-01-13 20:15:09

Well, right now there's only one.
Addresses at can't be used, because the mail server refuses to accept mail from us. Their server is really strict about not accepting mail unless a valid reverse DNS name exists. I'll be trying to get reverse DNS set up for us ASAP, but in the meantime we can't accept any signups from

I expect we'll have more domains with this same problem. I'll post them to this message as I find them.

Oh no, Brazil is causing more problems. New users are coming in pretty quick considering we just enabled sign-ups again. We are averaging somewhere around 10 a day. I am going to start assisting in some development with Laird. Does anyone have a book on Perl? :)

I definitely have one somewhere, but it's been through hell and there are blood stains on it for whatever reason.

I've got the O'Reilley Advanced Perl Programming book, which for the most part covers stuff far more advanced than I know :) It's great for dealing with referenced variables (pointers), multidimensional arrays, and database access. Somewhere I also have a fantastic SQL book that teaches real, standards-compliant SQL instead of the vendor-proprietary bullshit that most books have.

Actually one of the best places to start is - the first few chapters of her book are online. That's actually where I first learned perl!

PHP is so similar to perl that once you've got the basics covered, you can do PHP and hardly realize it's a different language.
