So for purely research purposes I headed to The Pirate Bay the other day, from home, on my Orcon Genius connection.  

Funnily enough I couldn't get through, I kept getting failed requests that timed out.  "Oops! Chrome could not connected to thepiratebay.se" my browser would say.

It suggested redirected URL's that also didn't work.

So I tried on my Telecom XT iPhone connection and what's this?! It's working just fine!

I tried a bit later and I could connect from home again.  But again today it's not working.  My connection at work is fine - no problems getting through, but for the life of me I can't connect from home.

The other day I thought it might be my browser cache or some cache in my router - funny thing is my Genius got replaced recently so it's a brand new router and still from day one of that device I had problems.  I also replaced my server on the weekend with a new box and new OS install - same thing.

It also happens on my MacBook and iPad.....it won't connect for ages then I try later and it's okay, then I go back a while later and it's down again....all the while accessible from another ISP.

So, the only conclusion is that Orcon are up to something funky with this website.  I thought maybe their DNS was causing it but I can't get through on the IP either.

Anyone else having problems?
