Your "home computer", or your own router or the ISP you use, is caching 
old information for a while.

While the "while" your ISP uses should be defined by your ttl (in your 
case defined as 10 hours and 24 minutes), some ISPs have been known to 
ignore the defined TTL and cache for whatever metric they like.

Your own router (if any) may or may not be using TTL; it should be.

Your "home computer" software is probably caching old information until 
you shutdown the program and restart it; in some cases until you reboot 
the computer.
