http://www.computerworld.co.nz/ seems to be having some problems. If you go to their website you get a splash page saying they're part of Fairfax, but doesn't mention computerworld at all. If you click on the links in their emails (formely daily, now occasionally) the links don't work. eg link1, link2, link3.

I tried emailing them, but predictably they didn't reply. Anyone know what's going on with them? Right now they're just spam.

Seems fine to me. Both full and mobile sites. Telecom VDSL, Auckland. The links you posted also seem fine.

Fairfax dumped PCworld, computerworld, reseller news, etc and they are now owned by IDG again.

Interesting. From my work computer I can see nothing, from my Telecom phone I can see the mobile website and the article links.

Could perhaps be a DNS issue? The domain resolves to 210.48.100.25 from work, but network-tools.com resolves it to 54.252.106.65 - when I put that IP into my work PC I end up at http://www.arnnet.com.au/

Resolves to 54.252.106.65 for me too. I'd say your works caching outdated DNS records?

Strangely when I ping I get the 210 address, but when I nslookup I get the 54. Very odd.

tried an ipconfig /flushdns on your local PC and do you have some sort of caching firewall at work?

My PC is only three days old. The place I work is a bit of a mish mash of fail, so I bet they're doing something wrong.

On a newsletter a couple of weeks ago half the links didn't work - and because half did it wasn't a DNS issue. They're going downhill for sure.
