For the past couple of  days here at work I have not been able to access http://www.androidcentral.com/.  Can ping it OK but can't access it via the IP address..  Have tried running DHCP and fixed IP  on our LAN at work but same thing.  Have not tried it at home on Orcon. 

Have tried various Telecom DNS addresses but no good and also from different PCs and via different Telecom ADSL circuits we have here.  Seems OK from my Telecom cell fone..

When i use  the Google public DNS address  of 8.8.8.8 it works OK.

Anyone else have this problem on Telecom??

Hummm Weird... I'll have a poke into it and see what the story is.

Sounds like they broke something on their end:

The DNS support teams have given the DNS server a little tickle before Christmas as the Android Central DNS has now propagated worldwide.

And it's now working fine for me on my test line.
