And I can comment using links having sshed to someplace where www.unfogged.com, and not unfogged.com (rather than vice versa), gives the new server.

Maybe things will stay like this forever.

I just loaded unfogged.com without typing in the numbers and got the new site. Then I clicked on the comment thread for "Overclocked," and it did not send me to the old comments. Let's see where this comment appears.

If anyone wants a command-line python script for uploading stuff to rapidshare - say, if you have shell access to a server with a Really Big link into the tubes - I've got one of them too.

Neb, I was a bit intrigued by unfogged.com/www.unfogged.com seeming to propagate so differently. Before you went to a CNAME for www was it just an A record? (As I noted somewhere, the trick seems to be to set the TTLs to a very short interval at a time > normal TTL before the move.) Also, it appears that you moved to new nameservers at the same time, so was wondering if the DNS records were updated on the old NS servers at the same time? If it is possible (and it isn't always), best to move the NSs first and get them established then the contentful stuff.

After the fact advice, the best kind! Especially the kind that is half-remembered/half-search refreshed from the mid-'90s.

Well, here's what happened.

ns{,1}.unfogged.com are (obviously) subdomains of unfogged.com. I thought we'd have to update the nameserver listing with Network Solutions but ogged, a cock, denied that this was (a) necessary or (b) possible.

At first what I did was just copy the config file from the old host to the new one, changing IPs (actually I missed out one change but I don't think that's what lay behind the propagation weirdness as I caught that relatively soon). At that point www.unfogged.com was an A record with the same ip as unfogged.com. Then I stopped bind on the old server and started it on the new, because (duh) it hadn't occurred to me yet that that would make it impossible to find the nameservers.

Ogged pointed this out and I restarted bind on the old server, but changed its config around so that it asserted that {ns{,1},www,}.unfogged.com had the correct new IPs.

At some point during the day I also changed www.unfogged.com to a CNAME record and shortened the TTL on the old server.

Finally, last night, I managed to convice ogged (who is a cock) that he really did have to update the nameserver info at Network Solutions. This involved—and here I'm going to violate the sanctity—his maintaining at first that when the NS documentation pages said "IP address", they just meant "address", as in, domain name. Eventually it was established that that interpretation made no sense and things were updated there. At this point—or possibly sooner actually as it seemed to be making no difference—I shut down bind on the old server again.

So, basically, the last thing to change was the nameservers.

53: ogged alive!

Reported to be alive.

52: OK, not surprising that it was hard to pinpoint. It was the split that was intriguing, as if the A record had a TTL that overrode the domain TTL. I only got to the new "www" after the CNAME, but it was not like I was checking with any regularity. What I *was* looking for and only found last evening, was a site like this one, just DNS lookup, which resolves from a lot of different places (the ones I recalled from years ago were gone, or pay or had other kinds of BS problems). By the time I ran it (~8:30 PM EDT), both forms were resolving to the new IP from all locations at the site.
