The idea behind having two IP addresses and setting up the DNS servers was
because I wanted to eventually setup some redundancy and play around with
running a server out of my house. I'll create the second A record for
jetbbs.com again but when we get into the new house, I'll change it so the
IP address for the second A record points to my server at the house. That
way, if one server goes down, people can still connect. It'd be a great
opportunity to learn this stuff a bit more I think.
