    That 1.2.13 was very stable, my DNS server ran from
    shortly after 1.2.13 came out (I had 1-2 patches applied) until Dec 30
    1999 when I shut it down because of suspected Y2k issues. It was called
    glacial because it was on a 12MB 386sx-16, not because it was so cool;-)

    Alan's machine got much more use than mine, but it probably had a lot
    more fixes.
