…that which you can put off indefinitely.

Today saw a very strange set of outages of Pepperfish’s upstream ISP’s
routing. After a while [Loud-n-Clear](http://www.loud-n-clear.net/)
managed to get enough back running that I was able to move MX services
to the new IP range which we’ve been pending putting into action for
quite a while now.

Once things were stable again at about 17:00 I began shifting services.
Now at 19:22 the only things left unmoved are a couple of SSL websites
which I need to concentrate very hard before I move.

All in all, very painless once I forced everyone’s zones on the box (ca.
190 domains) to have a 60 second TTL. I guess I’ll take the hit for the
extra DNS traffic for a couple of hours. (TTLs are back to normal now)

And now, I’m off to play in a hellmouth. The things I do to
unwind…
