Here’s an open thread for those of you who can still access the site.
The balloon-juice.com domain name registration expired yesterday, and most of us can’t get to the site because the registrar turned off DNS resolution for www.balloon-juice.com
Those of you who can still reach the site are here because your ISP hasn’t updated its DNS cache, or because your browser has cached the DNS lookup of the site. At some point the cache will expire and you won’t be able to get to the site anymore.
For those of you who know what this means, the IP address of the server is 188.8.131.52. You can put an entry in your hosts file of
and you’ll be able to get to the site that way.
DougJ and I are trying to get hold of John, who’s apparently traveling, to get him to renew the registration.
Update: I just paid to update the domain, thanks to pseudonymous in nc for pointing out that could be done. I’ll bet 20 other people did, too, so this is probably paid until the next Mayan apocalypse.
