i am not sure if this will mess with the ip address and it will have to be updated in the tables or whatever it is that makes site unreachable for 24 hours or so after such a change. can we get the direct ip out here just in case this happens or if i am totally wrong about this possibly happening then i apologize in advance.

It was kewl seeing his name in print. :)

Reyth October 13 2011 5:20 PM EDT

So you are talking about registration lag?

Reyth October 13 2011 5:22 PM EDT

Ya I for one would like those series of digits separated by dots. :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 13 2011 5:24 PM EDT

i think it might be the dns tables that get messed up in certain situations but resolve themselves usually in about 24 hours. having the direct address can get you there regardless.

as i said i am not sure of all the correct names and if it will even be an issue so am just bringing it up as the worse that can happen is i will look silly if it isn't an issue! ; )

that's actually what happened the last time the server was moved. we need the new ip ahead of time

Reyth October 13 2011 7:29 PM EDT

Ok lets get down to brass turkey, how much are you selling the direct IP # for?

I bid 1M CBD.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 13 2011 9:02 PM EDT

reyth, who exactly are you talking to?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 14 2011 5:14 PM EDT

bump for an answer, time is running out! ;)

an ip address lookup site came up with this:

i wrote it down just in case, if it doesn't help there is little lost!

I'm not sure how much notice Jon will have, but we can always post on the Facebook group or G+ circle.

If you find you can't access it after it supposed to be back up you can always try using Google's DNS server since it's likely to be updated quicker and
