Anyone there ..................... Question
Jamanda

It's OK Rosie. We brought everyone - but I imagine a few might have cookie issues again.
Green Rosie

Mmmmmmmm - cookies - there's an idea to fill my cake tin Laughing
judith

Hurrah. We're home.
Can I start arranging the furniture now?
Green Rosie

Pah - I've got at least 4 unpacked boxes from when I moved 8 years ago Embarassed

Hopefully not, since :

1) Cookie settings were changed to make things better.
2) This time we have not done any clever redirection, people get here when they get here, slower but safer.
pookie

blinkin eck....I was out, then in, out again, now in again.....s'like hokey kokey Laughing
jema

Would figure, my phone is OUT currently, it had a spell IN.

Time to live on some wrong DNS records out there is 8 hours!
Jamanda

So not everyone has made it yet. My phone hasn't I just checked. I really don't understand it, but there we go.
jema

When we change the server we change IP address and tell the internet nameserver system that we have done so.

This is a massive distributed system, we have our own nameserver, so does your ISP and your phone company.

When you ask your phone to go to downsizer, it asks the phones nameservers if it knows where downsizer is?

If it doesn't it asks another nameserver.

When it knows where downsizer is, it saves it so it does not have to ask again.

To facilitate updates, you can specify a TTL (Time To Live) on records to prevent addresses being hung onto for too long, but many nameservers ignore the given TTL and stamp everything 48 hours and update things in their own fashion....
jema

And this posted from the phone Smile
mihto

I'm here, I'm well and truly logged in. Only cookie issue is the Christmas left-over ginger-breads in the cupboard and that's nobody else's problem
Evil or Very Mad

Phone? Where does my little mobile fit into the great scheme of things? Surprised
alison

At last, I am here.
Mary-Jane

*Puff, puff, puff...*

pookie

Has she rebooted?
Penny Outskirts

Yes and done cookies Sad
sean

It's probably just taking a while for whatever DNS server she uses to catch up with the move. If she tries again later it should be OK.
pookie

she's on the other side having a bacon butty Sad

What's a DNS server? On second thoughts, don't tell me I won't understand anyway.

They are basically name to address translation systems, and they is what is leading people astray by not being up to date with our new address.
Jamanda

I like cheese on my bacon butty. As apparently all the cookies have gone I've made millionaires shortbread.

Anybody else who are missing their notifications?

Except apparently we are somewhere other than Kansas.
