Normal service is expected to resume shortly.
Turns out that having both an A Record and a C Name entry with my DNS host, TextDrive, is not what it takes to weather TypePad’s IP address change without incident. I guess you have to delete the A Record or something…
Apparently having both an A Record and a C Name entry is a problem rather than being the redundant method that glides me smoothly over TypePad’s IP change. Grrr.
No one appears to have located the map book either, so I’ll just walk those 300 or so miles again.
Anyhow, if you need my site, try metagrrrl.typepad.com instead of http://www.metagrrrl.com in the URL and it should work fine.
