Updating your dynamic domain in zonestraits using "manual mode"

I've registered one of my domain using zonestraits and point it to old box belong to my old frens, Due to some technical problems, all data and /home is corrupted and wiped off.. so i lost most of my old data. Some of it is fortunately backed up (unplanned) and it's my old linux how-tos and guide.

So now since I've my own box, FreeBSD + NetBSD at my home and it's up for long hours so i decided to switch the domain pointing it here ( to the FBSD box ). When i surf to the zonestraits, i discovered that they not yet provide the tools to update the domain dynamically ( zonestraits is just a new site, so they need time to build up and mature ) like i normally used "ddclient" in

so the only method exist is using web browser pointing to zonestraits. But i discover that we've given a "token" like an ID to our registation that can be used to update. Possibly and i do believe this token is fixed value.

So i create my own method to update the ip to the domain using the "old technique" in linux/unix/BSD by using LYNX to open a http connection to zonestraits, and this can run in crontab, keep on updating every 15mins or 1 hour. But i face a new problem, lynx need to confirmed the cookies "interactively" by answering yes or no while connecting, and this will make the connection "hang" until the question answered.

Look into he google, searching for it and i found out the answer wich solve the problem once and for all..

server# lynx --accept_all_cookies

the full links is included the XXX that need to be replaced with your actual token that shown on screenshot above

.................valid token......................
Your new IP is XXXXXXX as at 23/11/2008 3:57 am

walla!! it's done!! so who say we need an exclusive software just to keep update out domain -> ip?

so now u just ned put that command in crontab, and kills it after few minutes it's done, that's it!

p/s: wahaha AMIRRRR ( zonestraits owner ) I want my credittttt!! :D

My Playlist..

Music is part of my soul, heart, belief, and life..
generally i listen to may tunes, such as blues, jazz, oldschool pop-disco, 60's rocknroll, ska, raggae, rock, METAL etc

above all, i choose METAL as my "beliefs" range from classic rock to heavy metal, thrash metal, speed metal, death metal, brutal death, grind death, grindcore and ultimately blackmetal..

my faves all time, even during working is:

1- IRON MAIDEN - Somewhere In Time

The superb album.. ( anyway all 1st 7 album from MAIDEN is legend!! ) track like "Caught somewhere in time", "The loneliness..", "Deja Vu", " Alexander the Great", the groovy and sweet solos on "stranger in the stranger land".. the popular tracks like "Wasted years", "Heaven can wait" amke mostly this album is one of the perfect rock/heavy metal album in history!


3- KING DIAMOND - A Dangerous Meeting

4- RIOT - Thundersteel

The greatest and the best album from RIOT.. all speed/power/heavymetal aggresive fast riffs combined with crazy yet powerful solos and high pitched vocals.. made this album a legend!! try it by yourself..

5- TERRORIZER - World Downfall

legendary grindcore album from TERRORIZER, featuring Oscar Garcia ( vox/NAUSEA ), late Jesse Pintado ( RIP ) ( guitar/ NAPALM DEATH/LOCK UP ), David Vincent ( bass / MORBID ANGEL ), and Pete Sandoval ( drum/ MORBID ANGEL ).. this simple line up already produce something that never been challenge/beaten! even their later albums also is far less powerful ( more to crusty-tuned). It takes just 45 mins to crush your ear to pieces!!

6- DEATH - Leprosy

7- DEATH- Scream Bloody Gore

8- DEATH - Spritual Healing

9- KREATOR - Pleasure to Kill

10- KREATOR - Endless Pain

Sunday, November 09, 2008 2008 2008, APIIT TPM

Arrive there, afternoon.. meet aizatto and get my badge.. join' up and meet some old frens Haris, sharuzzaman, piju ( with his booth ), adli, shakir (3boss), from kuantan my TKLUG team zamri and his frens shah, and many2 more..

some small booths, selling tshirt, books etc.. 2 tracks run on 2 halls.. just simple talks on oss community etc2.. then when i run to one of the halls.. one guys Fadhil Luqman is recognize me and say "hey dude! just give some speech/talks after this"

i'm not prepared, since i just bring my "special box" with me to show to my fellow frens about it.. then after a few speeches from some guys, then suddenly he call my name..

well go the standing, blablablabla about my imvolvements since 1997, my projects on OSS and i've opened the "special box", show the hardware inside, what lies beneath the os NetBSD 3.1 and apps running..

got some Q&A then that's it..
well the corwd is giving me a good reponse.. TQ all..

Then other people give the speech..

closing the talks is vote for the best speech/talks... I never expected to be 1st runner-up and bring back nice and cute SELANGOR PEWTER's pic frame... TQ for who's voting me!

Meet someone i respect, mr Obiwan, malaysian kernel hacker and grid computing masta..

me, Obiwan and "my special box"..

After the event, called someone who want to sell me his old laser printer Canon LBP-800 for rm80! well it old, but it's hold and kickin ass hardware and using LPT/parallel port.. so i've decided it'll connected to old pc+OS+LPR/CUPSD/RAW@JETDIRECT port software as print server!

my other options/selections is HP Lasetjet PCL5/6, since it's old, robust, can fillup lots of paper, and driver is easy in any platform...

before slam my body to bed ( hey I'm working tomorrow!! SUNDAY!! ).. just downloaded+burn PCBSD 7.0.1-i386 ( 3 CD full ) and AMD64 ( 3cd full ) for testing...

time to shutoff everything and be prepared...

Got my Net.. now the development begins...

Got my net installed..
gosh no choice i have to take TMNUT because there's no coverage of other ISP in my area.., just need to activate! sheeshh ) 1st i applied it thru agents, it take 1 full month ( stewped! ) with lots of excuses to install even my landline! ( anyway the cables is already there )..

Then i rush ( terjah! ) the TMPOINT, register it myself, blabbering blabla and u what happen? within 2 days the cable guy came and start to do their work.. 1-2 more days for activate the phone.. then now my Screamyx accounts issue..

**SIGH** abit frustrated when i discover, my area is not covered for 4MB (?) connection but just maximum 1MB.. well i really need it since i need some faster connection for my pc/server.. anyway.. 1MB pun 1MB lah..

when the accounts is activated, i'm rushed to my project office, take spare modems ( since the TM tech will just came tomorrow, feel so damn late! ).. it's DANCALL and AZTECH.. take it home, turn on my old ( it's ready+installed ):

pentium 187MMX +
40MB RAM (it's EDO RAM!!)
preinstalled with FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE, customised kernel

put the cable and start the ppp dialing... walla!! it's connected!!

later just simple script of ipnat and such simple thing, cable it thru old 8port 3com switch, make it as fw/gateway.. and that's all!.. other server/pc is waiting to connected.. then i link to 1 boxes of CeleronD 2.4, one "Special Devices" running on NetBSD 3.1-STABLE..


actually it's an old TV decoder for hotels that been scrapped off, cyrix233, AMD geode chip, 3Com FXP onboard NIC, 1PCI+1ISA slot, 6GB HDD with 64mb PC100 SDRAM.. so far it runs on NetBSD, no problem at all... apps I've run on it is SAMBA 3.x, apache 1.x, ipf/ipnat, and other thingy.. BitchX!!

Next day, the TM guys came and bring the RIGER modem.. just put it on for few minutes, try if it's worked, then i decided to use AZTECH.. since it's performance is really2 good..

Then I've contacted one guy who post the CPU for sale in price is reasonable so he came, tested, and decide to take the deal..

AMD Athlon64 3000+
512 MB RAM ( I've added another 512MB from my extra RAM )
ABIT uGURU motherboard
Leadtek Nvidia GeForce5900XT 256bit 128MB

well it's fair enuff for me, because I'm planning to start working on
1-PCBSD PBI pkg development/creation.. since it's runs on amd64, then it's targeted for AMD64 platform ( previously the target was i686 )..
2- bug test for PCBSD 7 and above/beta
3- other BSD/oss test for apps performance tuning etc..

Just thinking to add 1-2 more of this box ( later ) and 1-2 Mac box (ppc) eMac/iMac etc then 1 brandnew/latest spec of AMD boxes ( AM2 X2 6000 or Phenom )... for the time being, this is enuff..
