I got over excited when I saw the DNS improvements in the change log and updated, don't get me wrong, it's great to be able to add static CNAME records now and you can use Regex, unfortunately I don't think it quite goes as far as I would like it to. Basically, I need to do one small DNS rewrite, an...
