Can you folks reach github.com on your Vodafone Home ADSL connection? I can't, and the tech support guy at Vodafone couldn't either. I understand they are looking in to it, but in the meantime...

If anyone knows a way I can access it, short of SOCKS proxy'ing to the US, or using my 3G hotspot every time I want to commit or update code, please let me know.

Happens on other websites too, but github is just the most prominent (and annoying one). Another to try magentocommerce.com.
