gordon.dewis.ca - Random musings from Gordon


“We apologize for the inconvenience…”

I moved my blog to a new server this weekend. Because the IP address changed I had to update the DNS records for gordon.dewis.ca. Whenever you do this sort of thing, it can take a while for the new information to propagate across the Internet. The records have been out there for a while now so people should be connecting to the new server, but I can see from the logs there are still a few people connecting to the old server. (They seem to be mostly ‘bots, so it’s not the end of the world.)

There are often problems when you switch servers. The most annoying one so far occurred in the wee hours of the morning when the network adapter decided to “forget” that it was supposed to be listening to the IP address, so my blog “disappeared” for a little while today. That problem has been resolved (no pun intended!), so it shouldn’t happen again.

I hope.
