How to incorporate a Google forum into blog?

Once I saw a thread in Old BHF:How Do I? I advised to use Google groups. Now extending this idea, The forum can be embedded inside your blog pages/posts/widgets etc., All you need to do is Create a Google Forum.
  1. After creating, copy the below code,
    <iframe id="forum_embed"
            src="javascript:void(0)"
            scrolling="no"
            frameborder="0"
            width="600"
            height="700"><br />
    </iframe><br />
    <br />
    <script type="text/javascript">
      document.getElementById("forum_embed").src =
          "https://groups.google.com/forum/embed/?place=forum/thetroubleshooters" +         
          "&showsearch=true&showpopout=true&parenturl=" +
          encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);
    </script>
  2. In the above code replace thetroubleshooters with your forum's link name.
  3. My forum's link is :
    https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/thetroubleshooters.
  4. Here the red colored thetroubleshooters is my forum's link name.
  5. Just find yours and replace it with mine.
  6. So, my forum is embedded in my blog here : http://www.krishnainfotron.x10.mx/p/comments.html#start.

DWI - Not all the time "Authoritative" helps

We already saw the common issues when custom domain is involved where we saw a tool called DWI - Dig Web Interface which will help us get DNS records of a particular domain.

Today while coming across a forum thread, got to notice a strange thing ever. It's not the first time however. If you refer the article about corrupted DNS, the blog URL used had similar issue.

It is normally recommended to use "Authoritative" under Name servers when digging a domain. However this doesn't always workout.
