A picture named crumb.jpgI bought a cool domain for a project I'm working on, r2.ly. Permalink to this paragraph

It takes Libya forever to approve these things, but they finally have, and I've changed the DNS to ns1.slicehost.com and ns2.slicehost.com (where I now have an account, with DNS control) but I can't tell what's going wrong cause I don't really know how to debug DNS. Permalink to this paragraph

I just know that it's not resolving on any of my machines. Permalink to this paragraph

Can you tell what the problem is with it? Permalink to this paragraph

And if you solve the problem you get to call me stupid in the comments and I won't moderate it out. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph
