I'm on my G5 now, but earlier, from my MBP, I couldn't get on the forums at all. I got that notice that said the forums had been moved and that I should clear my cache to get to the new forums.AppleCentral.com site. Just in case, I cleared the cache, but even though I went to the forum.AppleCentral.com site, I kept getting the same message.

"If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world but not with Republicans? Maybe he’s not the problem."
Just now I couldn't get to http://forums.applecentral.com/ through my bookmark to the forums, or even by going through MacTech, I'd get the moved page too. I had to go back in my history directly to this thread to get to the forums.

So, here's the deal everyone. I've been out of town a bunch, and while I was gone at one point, the DNS servers at GoDaddy took a big dump for a couple of days. It affected everything from web to mail and more. This is now the 2nd time we've had issues with GoDaddy's DNS servers, and yesterday, we moved all the DNS for the main domains to Zone Edit -- which has proven to be nicely reliable.
It appears, however, that GoDaddy wanted to do one last goodbye in this transaction, and didn't handle the DNS changeover as nicely as it should have. This resulted in DNS getting served up wrong for a period of time.
There's nothing we could have done differently -- it's unfortunately, just the way they do their DNS stuff. It should shake itself through, but you may be able to expedite it by getting your DNS cache to clear.
