Tinkering with Raspberry Pi 3 - bind9 and bindgraph

Well, I guess I'm back. Not sure for how long, or how frequent, but I think I should keep tab of how I configured my Raspberry Pi 3 as DNS Cache, as well as configure a DNS zone for my local network.

For me, the easiest option to do implement DNS caching is using BIND9 for Raspbian stretch. I am also using bindgraph to gather some cool graphs of DNS queries.

Perhaps, I'll share my process installation, challenges and solutions later. For now, here's a screenshot of my DNS Cache presented using bindgraph:

I am accessing this website from my Windows 10 computer on the same network. The site is configured to be viewable only inside the same subnet.

I realized that I haven't posted on this blog for a very looooong time. I guess this is just here to memorialized some thoughts, trivial or not that happen to cross my mind from time to time. So much has happend since the last time I made a post. Right back then, it was just Jelly Bean that is available on Android. Apple got their iPone 4S and iPad 3 and it has been a fierce competition to being the best mobile device producers. From small players to giant tech companies.

Five years later, I'm still here, on the sideline while I bear witness on how things come by. From being an "office worker" in Makati, to a consultant in a big financial company in District of Columbia. Several winters, springs, summers and falls. And also witnessed Brexit and Trump events, which I think will be remembered for a long time, be it for being the best, or the worst, depending on which side of "the wall" you are in.

We'll here's my few five cents. Until then.
