I'm not having the same issue... or didn't. Maybe more people are
hitting the servers now, causing the timeouts (?).

I save each dig output in the loop separately. The first three all start:

;; Warning: Message parser reports malformed message packet.
;; Truncated, retrying in TCP mode.

; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> the.z.zoy.org
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:


Then below ";; ANSWER SECTION:" have multiple lines of mostly unreadable
letters and numbers.

The fourth time through the dig look-- looking up and.z.zoy.org-- the
output is significantly (?) different: There I just get this:

; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> and.z.zoy.org
;; global options: printcmd

What's the perl part of the command/script supposed to do with this?
