Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone else is having issues with Slingshot tonight. I noticed Imgur was taking a long time to load earlier, but now no images from Amazon.com are loading and as of writing I couldn't load Geekzone over my ADSL. Tethered iPhone? No problems.

I'm on the AYCE plan, restarted modem and Airports to no avail. Also happening on my iMac when I plug it straight into the modem.

Seems to be limited to HTTP as geekzone.co.nz is replying to pings (mostly) fine. I can also access Geekzone fine through my Sixxs IPv6 tunnel. Unimpressed.

I am having big problems. In fact, I can only access this site using TunnelBear VPS.

I can't connect to icloud.com, or even slingshot.co.nz

Have rebooted modem but no better

Seems like I can't get to most CloudFlare sites from Slingshot. I would say this looks like a CF issue (GZ appear to be behind them) but I still can't load iCloud or load any images from Amazon's CDN.

Have DNS issues at the moment.

Timing out resolving bytesized-hosting.com - snap router is resolving fine. Friend who I let use my seedbox had issues connecting to it and is on slingshot too.

I happen to notice that GZ is hosted via Equinix peering.... I'm wondering if this is happening to slingshot becuase of direct peering with Equinix.

Thanks
Bevin

Traceroutes and pings were working fine, all of the sites I had issues with hopped through Equinix though.
