Topic: Zone transfer of chumby.com soon

Sometime over the next couple of days, we will be doing a zone transfer of the chumby.com domain.

There should not be any disruption of service - if all goes well.

This has been completed.

Can someone enlighten me? "zone transfer"? Time zone?

Re: Zone transfer of chumby.com soon

The chumby.com domain's "start of authority" was moved from one set of servers to another set of servers.

When you type "www.chumby.com" into a web browser, your computer uses a "domain name server" to convert that name to a numerical address on the Internet.  Typically, that is done by a server operated by your ISP.  Your ISP, in turn, gets that information (ultimately) from a server called the "start of authority" for the domain.  That's the server that, in this case, I control to point the various names to the servers that perform the functions needed to run the service.

The "start of authority" for chumby.com was on a set of servers that is scheduled to go away at the end of the month, which would mean that no "chumby.com" domain would work properly.  I moved it to another service that will survive.

Understood. Thank you for the explanation _and_ the education. I do appreciate it.

Is it safe to assume the server switch would work for Insignia 3.5 devices as well? Are Insignia devices reliant upon any BB servers?

As I understand it, all chumby devices and BB (infocasts) will work after the transition. Sony Dash is a separate server altogether administered by Sony. BB Infocasts rely on the chumby servers.

Great, thanks.
