Re: Tumblr domain needs updating

I've updated the IP that blog.theforest.org.uk points at to the one from the email: 66.6.44.4. TTL on the record is 4h so the change should propagate quite quickly.

You can get a Restricted Service License for a month, but it costs about £1000 for a 1W broadcast and about £2000 for up to 25W plus various Ofcom fees etc (about £500) so it's pretty much out the question for us.

The fact that the pages is on a 192.168.11.* address is bad, as it means that the authoritative DHCP server on the network is being overridden.
