Of email and inflated sheep’s stomachs

I will be moving several gigabytes of email around – probably today – and may have a few glitches while I figure out what is up.

My grasp of how this works, with MX records and redirects and all, is rather at the level of wonder of member of the tribe must have while watching the shaman dancing by firelight around an inflated sheep’s stomach.

    I should be happy to help you with this, Father, if you like. I am not far from you in the city, and I believe that you have my contact information. By the way, it was very to good to see you last night at the Mass so well celebrated by Bishop Perry. The schola was superb and the servers were exemplars of decorum and address

    Father:
    Be sure to ask about the interval for DNS refresh, that is, the time it normally takes for the registration records to update. In general, on a local system it should be in the 4 to 6 hour range max; and about that in normal US ISPs; but you should be prepared that since you are a global interest site, DNS entries on far flung servers may not update for up to 24 hours.

  3. Animadversor: Thanks for the offer. I do have some help with this, thanks be to God.

    Did I see you in the front row at Holy Innocents?

  4. Ed: Thanks for that reminder about DNS refresh.

    You did, Father. I couldn’t find a seat farther back, except to the sides, where I always get a crook in my neck trying to participate actively. As it happens, I sat directly across from His Excellency, who has a very kind face.
