Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Edumacate me on DNS stuff

So I'm trying to set up Google Apps stuff for my domain. I have the Apps part set up, but now I need to engage in DNS voodoo to get mail delivered to the right place.
And I'm pretty clueless about this black DNS magic.
My domain is registered at Gandi, and I'm hosted on a SmartMachine account with Joyent - it's an old migrated TextDrive account.
At Gandi, I've set my DNS for the domain to ns1.textdrive.com and ns2.textdrive.com, and that looks like the limit to what I can actually do with DNS settings there.
I've been looking at separate DNS hosts so I can keep it all managed in one place, and so far PointHQ seems good, and even has an automatic configuration tool for Google Apps, adding the appropriate MX records for Gmail.
But I still need to get the A records in there for the web site, and a CNAME for mail.example.com for the Gmail interface (though that's optional).
Is it as simple as just adding an A record for "example.net." with a TTL and point it to the IP in its current zone file?
