Nameserver moved to new server
The transfer of the mail server has gone well and propagated just fine with minimal disruption. The next step of the migration is moving the nameserver back to where it was originally. I have taken the opportunity to rename the nameserver to something more logical, and this also seems to be propagating OK. If all remains well, I will be able to turn off the temporary transition nameserver soon. As of right now, all site services are now running via the new NBN IP address so when the old ADSL service is turned off there should be no disruptions at all.
Mail server now moved to new IP address
Setting up the Reverse DNS entry was a little less straightforward than I had hoped, but it has been done now and the site's email server has once again been moved to the new IP address. This time, it seems to be working OK. Finishing up moving the nameservers is the next step in the process. Currently, only one of the nameservers is working, and it is still working on the site's old IP address. Once I am happy that things are working out with email, I'll move the nameservers and then I'll finish the job by moving the michaeldvd.com domain. For now, everything should be working OK apart from possibly taking a little longer to load the site than usual because requests to one of the nameservers will simply be timing out.
Razorback (Blu-ray) (4K Remastered) (1984)
A flawed Ozploitation creation, Razorback often succeeds due to stylish visuals and some effective scenes of horror. It's an enjoyable sit, unfocused narrative notwithstanding. Umbrella's re-release Blu-ray is thankfully a huge step up compared to the previous 2014 disc. The remastered video transfer is very good, sometimes great, while the 5.1 audio mix is clear and well-mixed. Add in an outstanding selection of supplemental features, more extensive than most Arrow or Criterion releases, and this one comes highly recommended, particularly for fans of the movie.

Hurricane Heist, The (Blu-ray) (2018)
From director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) The Hurricane Heist is a loud, dumb and very implausible thriller but any audience expecting a hurricane, a heist and full on action will not be disappointed.

Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds (Blu-ray) (1989)
Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds is Australian writer / director Alex Proyas’ (The Crow) first film, a post-apocalyptic story shot on 16 mm in the desert outside of Broken Hill, NSW. The film sunk without much of a trace but now thanks to Umbrella and the beauty of HD we can experience this surreal gem looking and sounding better than it ever has.
