Shee-niou high-tech Alliance crap!

That's about what I'm dealing with right now: don't know if it's the computer or the Internet connection, but the gorram thing will not let me access a number of web sites. Most notably Myspace, LiveJournal, and IMDb, to name a few, which are sites that I frequent every day. Every time I click, it just sits there for a minute or so and then gives me "The operation timed out when attempting to contact such-and-such-a-site."

This happened once before - turned out to be caused by a problem with my CD-ROM drive, which I fixed. But all drives are working fine now, so the reason for this eludes me. Surely it's only a happy coincidence that Verizon just finished installing service in my building. But since FFF is one of only a handful of sites that I'm still able to access, I wonder if someone could please clue me what in ta ma de gui is going on here before I lose this site as well.

Try just using the ip address's of the sites concerned. Sounds like a DNS issue that you have. If the IP address's do not work that it is something a tad more sinister.

Just type the numbers inside the brackets into the browser address bar. [] [] []

Have try you never know.
