Re: BIND down, weird IPs pop up on tor.log

Thanks downie!

Briefly, I've found out that I have the "weird IPs" in the tor log
each time BIND has some temporary failure. This started happening
when I moved BIND to another pc in my LAN. It never happened when
BIND was running on the same pc as Tor.

I have this line:
Address something.dyndns.org

When my IP really changes, I can see correct entries in the log. The
problem doesn't seem correlated to my real IP changes.

I'm still running
Have I missed it, or there's been no announcement going around for
.25? I can see it now at
