in reply to The New Server

It seems to have broken my bookmarks somehow - i'm trying to figure that out now. but i have bookmarked things like Newest Nodes and Best Nodes and those bookmarks do not work now. They didn't refer to IP so I'm stumped about it...

Re: (2): The New Server (cookies, bookmarks after DNS updated)

    Your bookmarks should work again after DNS gets updated/propagated with the new box's IP address.   Essentially the same reason why cookies need reissued - issueing server was, but the new box is (temporarily) just with no DNS name.

    At least, that's been my experience the other couple times His Vroomness moved PM since I've been here.

    Update: As merlyn points out below, is, for the moment anyway, just a redirect from old box to the new box's IP address.   I wouldn't be too concerned - vroom has always been waaay more responsive than any could ask for.   Doubtless things will be back to normal in no time.

      No doubt vroom will fix all of this...saw it was redirect soon after posting. I just figured this poll was trying to draw any and all things seen different since the move. Far be it from me to think I know enough to know what problems are big or small =)
