I don't see what you are looking at - .net and .com point to the same place with no indication of anything awry...of course, I'm late to the game and the DNS probably tells a different story...




This fellow is pretty confused, as from here (Michigan via Merit) the
DNS has pointed to different places since yesterday.

A quick survey of some caching servers in my neighborhood reveals that
some of them return "old/correct" A RRs for panix.com at this time.
presumably they have cached ns records from before the switch in the
com tld zone.


Thus justifying those who load their NS and corresponding NS's A records with nice long TTL

At least those whose caches' your still in will still talk to you after your registrar screws you.

(OT
Limiting named cache size could have an adverse effect for people hoping to cash into this inusurance. Shouldnt cache limiting kill low priority records such as A's which do not correspond to cached NS first....
