I upgraded to WordPress 188.8.131.52. I haven’t tried pinging anyone, nor will I test it out. When the time comes, I’ll find out if they work. Otherwise, all seems to be okay.
MX records for email still isn’t setup, and I’m not sure how to set it up. Waiting for more information from my host (if he can give it to me somehow). However, looking at his DNS report, it basically matches mine at this time. I haven’t gotten a response from emailing him last night, so maybe his email is down too. In the meantime, remember: use my contact form, and email me at Gmail.
