Custom Posterous subdomain with Gandi.net

The blog was down for a bit as I moved all of my domains from GoDaddy to Gandi.net. So far I couldn't be happier with the move save for one hiccup which was completely self-inflicted: editing DNS records with Gandi. Let me reiterate that last sentance one more time, I screwed up. You'd think someone who has experience with this stuff would be better at it, but nope. Problem was once I edited the DNS it would take hours to propagate then I would forget, check it  the next day, tweak the records, repeat. 
Here's how to get everything setup and running...
Setup the custom domain with Posterous
Create a new CNAME record at Gandi.net
Note the period at the end of posterous.com
That's it!
