I'm switching hosts for my public T2 server.

All hosts using should switch to
As for the physical location it is Fremont, CA and no longer Seattle, WA ( I had to grab some stock ;3 )
In terms of latency differences I'm seeing an additional 20ms so I don't feel too worried.

My current goal is to take my old server offline by the end of the month. Is that too soon for some?
I'm done with playing with obfuscated logs for now, so expect everything routed to null for a good while.
As for configuration goes on the replacement here is what my named.conf looks like:

options {
        directory "/etc/namedb";
        pid-file "/var/run/";
        statistics-file "/var/run/named.stats";
        version "[I <3 DNS]";
        allow-recursion { any; };

zone "." in
        type hint;
        file "root.cache";

zone "dns.opennic.glue" IN {
              type slave;
              file "/etc/namedb/slave/db.dns.opennic";
              masters {; };
              notify no;

logging {
        category default { null; };

t2.php seems to be pleased with the results. Please let me know if you see any issues with my replacement setup. Almost 230AM here and I need to get some sleep. :)

Thanks all!
