Hey, some of us are still stuck on the old site.

Here's what I've tried (I'm on a Mac, OS 10.6).

I cleared my cache using Firefox's preference window.

I flushed my dns cache using the line command
dscacheutil -flushcache

Those didn't change anything.

I managed to find this place by firing up my Tor browser (which I believe refuses to cache anything, among other paranoid techniques). But when I put this come-on-in URL into my other browser(s), it just comes up Page Not Found.

I am here on iPhone and iPad, but no luck on the windows work puter. Any tips?

I know that this is the old IP ia:

I can't figure out what the new one is.

I too can get here on my mobile phone, but not the at-work Windows PC. I've cleared the dns cache, but no dice.

I think it is just a matter of time for each machine to find the me server, at least according to ken. My pc is still on old one, might be all day.

[5] I don't think that's it. My Tor browser finds this new address, but my regular browsers do not. All on the same machine. So this is something that's browser-level, but it isn't the dns cache. Which means it's well over my head!

There's not much you can do if the DNS server your ISP provides you still has the old IP address cached, except wait. Technically, it could take up to 48 hours for that to happen.

If you are really geeky, you could set up your network to use a different DNS server, but I wouldn't bother.

Ken, can you please tell us the IP of the new site?

9 kenarneson   ~  Nov 4, 2011 10:51 am

It's But if you go to all you're going to see is the static file server for the old Baseball Toaster files.

10 RIYank   ~  Nov 4, 2011 11:16 am

Oh, right. I found that. Okay, thanks anyway.

I see what's happened for me: the Tor browser does DNS lookup at a different server, not my own ISP.

11 kenarneson   ~  Nov 4, 2011 11:24 am

Right. It's not the DNS cache on your computer that needs to clear out. It's the DNS cache on your DNS server that needs to clear out.

That server is usually provided and run by your ISP. So unless you work for your ISP's networking department, or know someone who does, there's not much you can do about it except wait.

Unless, as I said, you're geeky enough want to mess around with your networking configuration and change which DNS server you use.

OK, I have the comment preview back on again.
