[dns-operations] the thread of the week

When I had a sporadic internet connection and my nameserver was
doing negative caching I could not use bind at all until I started
first slaving the root and later everything I regularly used.

Slaving made the diff between works or doesn't work.

Later I remember some banks who used slaving after they had
experienced cachepoisoning.

Kind regards
