distrowatch.com?


For some reason I can not get www.distrowatch.com to come up.
I have tried it on Fedora using a number of differant browsers and I have also tried it with winXP and IE along with a number of other differant browsers including firebird.

I have taken down my firewall to see if that was the problem and still nothing.
I click on a link someone post or type it myself into the address bar.
The browser just searchs and searchs, but never finds anything.

So what's my problem?
Why can't I view distrowatch.com?

Thanks,

Not bad, still crunching away. Retreat to the river when it's not so cold. Pretty much the same old stuff. Tryin' not to do too much crusadin'.

They've had problems - there's a note about it on the site.

Our apologies to all those who have had trouble visiting this site over the past week - this was caused by a failure of one of the machines providing DNS services for DistroWatch.com. The domain is resolving again, but in case a similar problem happens in the future, just a reminder that you can still visit us at http://66.111.55.60.
