Is anyone else having issues reaching I can't bring up the webpage or get a ping response from the IPs returned by BigPipe's DNS or Google. Other sites are working fine and downforeveryoneorjustme etc. report the site as up.

Working fine on Vodafone here, maybe restart your router and see if you can get another IP.

Send private message is dead for me too. Looks like a BigPipe/Telecom issue.

there was an upstream problem that impacted some sites (including paypal) as well as access to some Aussie game servers.  It would have affected some, but not all, other ISPs too.

It should be fixed now - please lodge a ticket if you are still having issues.
