    [sorry if this is duplicate; i can't see that it went through the
    first time]

    i have a domain that i host off my own computer but for which i use a
    friend's nameservers. right now, those nameservers are down with an
    unspecified ETA of getting back up, and i'm thinking this would be a
    good excuse to figure out what's involved in doing my own nameserving.

    i have two questions:

    1. if i can't contact my friend, but i own the domain, i should be
       able to switch the nameservers i use without him having anything to
       do with it, right? just checking to make sure i understand this.

    2. any advice on which dns server package i should use, if i'm to do
       it myself? i seem to recall hearing the praises of DJBDNS sung,
       and i don't want to start a religious war, but i'm curious if there
       is a recommended beginner's straightforward DNS package out there
       that i should definitely use over all others.
