Administrative Note for Google Earth Blog

On late Thursday (February 26) Google Earth Blog migrated successfully to a new server. Traffic seemed to shift normally within 1 hour. However, I’ve had reports of people not going to the right server. Turns out the problem is consistently with the Google Chrome browser. Chrome has some sort of DNS cache that is not flushing itself. A bug in my opinion.
If you are using Chrome, one thing that seems to work is to delete your disk cache. Other than that, I can only suggest you use another browser temporarily to read GEB – or a feed reader – until Chrome works properly.
Anyway, contrary to some impressions – Google Earth Blog continues to operate normally if you follow the proper IP address according to DNS.
