Have you thought about tweaking this to use the new 'pyrax' module which replaced cloudnds? Thanks for this gist DW!

Hmm, probably my bad but on py2.7 I get:
File "get_RS_DNS.py", line 13, in <module> dns = clouddns.connection.Connection(USERNAME, APIKEY) File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/clouddns/connection.py", line 73, in __init__ self._authenticate() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/clouddns/connection.py", line 85, in _authenticate (url, self.token) = self.auth.authenticate() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/clouddns/authentication.py", line 109, in authenticate return ("".join(dns_management_url), auth_token) UnboundLocalError: local variable 'dns_management_url' referenced before assignment
On py3.4 I get other stuff as it needs to be ported to py3 properly.
