And We're Back

I said half an hour, and half an hour it took!

Update: Except that my clever trick of redirecting the reverse proxy to minimise downtime caused the spam filter to block, um, everyone.

Most people should have picked up the DNS changes by now and won't have that problem any more.

3 Big Daddy Pixy?  I don't know if it's just me or what, but ever since the upgrade I've noticed two perhaps-bugs.

1) If a spam-comment is put into a thread, it gets blocked but the comment count increases.  Clicking on "comments" to read the thread opens... nothing.

2) I've been experiencing a huge slowdown on all blogs, including my own.  It takes 20 seconds to open the "add link" or "add image" windows in the editor, not to mention just trying to visit a blog.

I know it's not on my end, because non-mee/ sites open just fine and I'm able to download things at my normal rate.

Thanks for all your efforts, Pixy ol' saint!

4 #1 is a known problem.  I need to fiddle with that.

#2...  Um.  I haven't experienced any problems.  Hmm.  Hrm.  (Just tried the linky thing there.)

Could you open a Command Prompt window, and do the following:


And let me know what IP address it finds for each one?  Maybe you're still going to the old server and getting redirected to the new one every time.

For me:

and loading performance is normal.

6 Yep, that's what it should be.  Sometime soon the Minx blogs will move to, but apart from that, no changes are expected.

7 What he said, as far as the IP addy goes.

8 Okay, that's good.

Could you try a different browser, or clearing your browser cache?  Something bad might have got stuck somewhere during the move.

Another possibility is a routing issue between you and the new server, but I'm hoping it's not that because that would be a bugger to get sorted out.

Cache cleared.  If I go to a mu/ site directly, it loads fairly swiftly, but if I follow a link (say, via my blogroll, or Steven's), it crawls.

The "backstage" pages at The Pond are still crawling.

I'm experiencing the same thing on three different browsers: Firefoxy 3, IE7, and whatever browser it is that AoL uses these days (some variant of IE).

10 Huh.  That's seriously weird.  Let me have a think.

11 It all still works, it's just slow.  I used dialup until October 2007, I can deal with this until it fixes itself or you work your usual magic!
