Testicles from heaven

At work I often have to clean up DNS reverse lookup zones when I reuse an IP address of a decommissioned server, because our Windows admin refuses to do so because “reverse DNS is stupid.” Windows supposedly populates and manages DNS by itself, but it frequently likes to leave old reverse lookup entries behind. So I get to manually remove those old entries.

Just now, I had the following conversation:

Me: “Who named their server SKY NARD?”

Windows admin: “What are you talking about? We never had a server named Sky Nard.”

Me: “It’s right here in the reverse lookup zone you never ever clean up.”

Windows admin: “That’s SKYNYRD man!”

Me: “No, that’s spelled with two Ys. You had a server named Sky Nard and never knew it.”
