    I have Paradise cable here in Christchurch. Numerous websites don't even
    load today. Here's a sample of them.

    www.google.com
    www.gigabyte.com
    www.winproxy.com
    http://hammorabi.blogspot.com
    http://iraqthemodel.blogspot.com
    http://iraq-iraqis.blogspot.com
    www.creativelabs.com
    www.abcnews.com
    www.intel.com
    www.customwire.ap.org

    I can ping the names, but the pages just don't load in Firefox
    and IE under Win XP Pro, nor using Mozilla under Fedora Core 1.
    The problem is definately with Paradise.

    Tony.

    Yes, me too. Except I can't get to overseas servers at all. Paradise only.

    paradise and clearnet are the same shit. What pisses me off is that unlike
    orcon youll never see anything on clearnets homepage about any problems
    there having. And if you ever spend half and hour calling helpdesk asking
    when its going to be fixed (which I did once) all you get is some pleab
    saying 'er, Im not aware of any problem).

    Thank god for nz.comp...I thought it was just my new Linksys gateway playing
    up some more.

    C'mon Paradise, sort it out. I've emailed them in the past to do MOTD, no
    reponse of course....as long as they get the $$ they don't care I guess.

    Yeah I did know they were the same, I guess I had not waken up yet when I
    wrote that post. As for the rest of your comments I agree %100 but
    unfortunately that is what you have to expect from big companies, big
    companies mean poor service, they are only successful because of
    monopolistic practices.

    :)

    I tried using xtra's DNSs this morning with the same results. The only
    reason
    you're now getting webpages working is because teltraclear has fixed the
    problem. :)

    Yes, great timing, I noticed that everything started working on the other Pc
    a moment after I changed over the dns. <sigh>
