is nerdpr0n loading for you?

Hey all - I switched servers last week and had a whole heap of bullshit with DNS servers. It took more than a couple of days to propagate fully, and some people were still having a hard time connecting to it. So, if http://www.nerdpr0n.com does NOT work for you, could you do me two favors? 1- tell me it doesn't work. 2- tell me what IP address it's trying to connect to - an easy way to do this is to ping me (start -> run -> ping nerdpr0n.com).


And if you were one of the people who couldn't connect this weekend, try it now, I have a hot new girl-girl set up to make it worth your while. ;)

Sorry in advance. The geek in me won't let me skip this!
...heap of bullshit with DNS servers.

Would that be the Domain Name Server servers? :) Are they related to the ATM machines that take your PIN numbers when you're withdrawing money to give to the NASA administration? (Again, sorry. We drove that joke into the ground in undergrad!)

Domain Name System servers.

Huh. That's funny. When I looked it up I found sites calling it both "Domain Name System" and "Domain Name Server". I wonder if the definition has drifted in the past few years, or if it's regularly used incorrectly.

I suspect it has drifted. I've only ever seen Domain Name System, DNS Server, or Nameserver/Name Server.

I have a similar suspicion regarding CGI. I recall that CGI was only ever Common Gateway Interface. Special effects in movies were CG (Computer Generated) effects, or CG graphics or sometimes just CG.

Then I started seeing people using CGI to describe CG things. I suspect CGI then became a backronym for Computer Generated Imagery, because some goons got the acronyms confused. Oy.

Comes up for me just fine.

Oh yeah, and so does your website. :-)

You can use nslookup to troubleshoot your problem. Type nslookup at the command prompt. You can use the server command to change the server you are looking up the info on.
Example: (I have commented to explain things.)
// Sample comment.

Default Server: dnsr1.sbcglobal.net

> server dnsr2.sbcglobal.net // Change the server we are looking stuff up on to dnsr2
Default Server: dnsr2.sbcglobal.net

> set q=all // View the whole record
> nerdpr0n.com // Lookup Nerdpr0n.com
Server: dnsr2.sbcglobal.net

Non-authoritative answer: // Non authoritative answer means you need to switch the server to the name server below.
nerdpr0n.com internet address =
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = spanky.3prongstudios.com < --- Right here
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = ns2.crt.net
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = ns1.cmedis.com

nerdpr0n.com nameserver = ns1.cmedis.com
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = spanky.3prongstudios.com
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = ns2.crt.net
ns2.crt.net internet address =
> server spanky.3prongstudios.com // Change the server to the "Authoratitave" server, so we can get the complete record.
Default Server: spanky.3prongstudios.com

> set q=all // view the whole record
> nerdpr0n.com // lookup nerdpr0n.com on this server
Server: spanky.3prongstudios.com

DNS request timed out.
timeout was 2 seconds.
nerdpr0n.com MX preference = 0, mail exchanger = nerdpr0n.com
primary name server = ns1.cmedis.com
responsible mail addr = simon.swegles.com
serial = 2007020805 // Usually the date/time it was modified
refresh = 86400 (1 day) // how long the other nameservers cache the info
retry = 7200 (2 hours) // Relookup the whole record in this time.
expire = 3600000 (41 days 16 hours)
default TTL = 86400 (1 day) // Another expire field.
/// Authorative nameservers of record
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = ns2.crt.net
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = spanky.3prongstudios.com
nerdpr0n.com nameserver = ns1.cmedis.com
// The actual servers ip address
nerdpr0n.com internet address =
nerdpr0n.com internet address =
ns1.cmedis.com internet address =
ns2.crt.net internet address =
spanky.3prongstudios.com internet address =

Totally unrelated comment, but I saw a music video for GWAR's cover of "School's Out" by Alice Cooper, and the girl in the video who sings backup reminded me of you.

why don't you just create a new.nerdpr0n.com with the new IP, so anyone with trouble reaching your site can use that domain name temporarily?
Jul. 5th, 2007 06:00 pm (UTC)
It loaded fine for me hun. :)
