This is certainly a fair piece of computer archaelogy, But it is similar to the situation if a museum would insist on providing narrow-wide tracks across the country infrastructure because they have this fine steam engine that still runs. It’s fine to keep your “narrow-wide tracks” in your backyard, but it’s unreasonable to insist that you must be able to run your John Bull coast-to-coast.

> and it still makes WKS queries, and i have used WKS responses to control it. the software still works as well as it was designed to do, but the vendor is long out of business. however, read on.

And it would still be able to issue TYPE7 queries and get answers. There’s neither WKS nor TYPE7 mnemonics on the wire, there’s just \007. I very much doubt that you do changes to the WKS record on a regular basis.

I understand that this whole DNS thing is drive by our “pet projects” needs, but this is a museum piece and not something that should shape the DNS standard in year 2018.

What I am proposing is reasonable - editing WKS records in hexeditor is reasonable tradeoff to getting rid of stuff that was already dead 30 years ago.

Cheers,
