Changing registrars

We're in the process of moving to a new registar (from to OpenSRS - the registar BC Pub uses) so I gain more control 
over my domain DNS wise.

I might loose DNS on the domain for a bit. I just got an email from the old 
registar that they have dropped, though their DNS 
servers still contain the DNS entries and is still considered 
the authoritative registar for I don't know how long's DNS servers keep the DNS records.

So if DNS dies down email will die down too, though I can still send mail 
from shadowfax (the server itself won't go donw, just be hostname-less for a 

shadowfax' IP is:
So you can still use IRC, http, and all that stuff by using the IP address.

If all goes well no DNS problems will occur, but I don't have any control 
over that situation. We'll just have to cross our fingers (well me mostly)
