How can Shoreline Birds and DNS be talked about in the same title? Well, let’s find out!
I understand that not everyone likes watching birds, or looking at photos of birds etc, well tough luck!
These little guys (Oyster Catchers) can be typically seen foraging among the mussels on low tide near 3rd Beach in Stanley Park. Their colourful bills definitely make them stand out when you’re walking the seawall as does the little chirps they make while running along the water’s edge. If you slowly make your way close to them and stand still for a while, they can come pretty close, but any movement will have them running away.
Adventures of Running a Website #102
This part might not make sense with the above section on Oyster Catchers, but after finding that my domain was down for a little bit, I was having issues again trying to connect. Though some people (like @Gusf) were saying they could get to my website without any issues. According to the wonderful tech-support of BlueFur.com, there was as rogue DNS entry on my domain (a 3rd DNS entry actually) that was probably the culprit. I removed it yesterday and waited.
This morning I still could not get to my website. I could get to it on my iPhone which had me thinking, perhaps I need to flush the DNS entries on my laptop (Windows: ipconfig /flush) and clear Firefox’s Cache (Tools->Clear Recent History). Well that’s exactly what I did and miraculously I could get back to my website! I’ll have to remember that when I change the DNS on one of my domains, I should always flush my DNS entries and clear my browser’s cache. It’s always the simplest of solutions when one has a problem right?
