Custom IDN’s and TLD’s Using Punycode and BIND

I’ve been playing around with some IDN’s and TLD’s and DNS etc…. i’ve realised you can create IDN (punycode) subdomains to any existing domain, in addition, i’ve created my own TLD, and setup a DNS server that works for this purpose. If anyone would like an IDN or a custom TLD, get in touch!

From anywhere in the WWW:

Set your DNS to: in order to take advantage of the new ком TLD. (note: this is just a bit of fun, and is not official).


Google Translate BeatBox’s for everyone!

Who knew translating from German > German would be so fun!?

I recently reminded myself of a great “google hack” during a lecture today on International Computing. (hello to anyone from there who is reading this!) In honour of internationalisation Google seem to have taken it upon themselves to make the CPU voices beatbox for us all! Just follow this link and click on listen to see what i’m talking about!

Also anyone noticed how google defaults translations to masculine and the voices to feminine… *TBC
