[BALUG-Admin] BALUG migration from DreamHost & DNS, etc.

... and the DNS bits have been kicked off, and verified those
changes propagated to the most relevant DNS servers,
notably those (newly) authoritative for balug.org,
and the org. NS servers ... all those have the relevant
current data (verified) - including glue records,
largest relevant DNS TTL is 86400, so, essentially 24
hours after those changes, any older cached bits
still hanging out in Internet DNS should have expired by
then and then be using the current updated data.

I think DreamHost.com freedom (from) day should arrive
starting late tomorrow.  :-)

> Nearly ready to start the major DNS changes to kick off last stages of
> migration of BALUG.org away from DreamHost.com hosting.
> This should mostly be highly seamless except ...

> www.balug.org
> balug.org
> lists.balug.org
> There may be some minor issues/discrepancies apparent, as for a while,
> (up to about 24 hours, due to DNS TTLs) those DNS names may go to either
> the old legacy DreamHost.com hosting, or the new "hosting" (self-hosted
> VM).
> There are also a fair number of DreamHost.com hosting specific DNS names
> that will be going away or changing - but those changes should
> effectively pass without notice or detectable impact (e.g.:
> www.mailboxes.balug.org.
> ftp.balug.org.
> mysql.balug.org.
> etc.)
> Note also that at the present time,

> it to work yet (but it will be revived to full functionality again
> in near future, as it will replace temp.balug.org which will be
> phased out over suitable adjustment period).
> If you notice any more significant issues, certainly feel free to
