Is anyone else unable to access Geekzone normally? Works fine on 3G or via a proxy. I'm not really able to do any troubleshooting at the moment, but have tried a Telecom and Vodafone connection with no luck.

Tried from three different devices too. Cleared DNS cache on all machines and manually set local DNS in router.

I had a look around for repeat or existing posts, but could not find any. Sorry in advance if there is one...It was a bit of a "man look" as the girlfriend calls it.

I think it was down all evening last night on telecom as I couldn't access it. But seems to be up now.

Still can't access from vodaphone line. Experienced the same last night as well, but at that point I thought it was just me.

It wasn't just you, as I used the which confirmed it was down. Maybe there is some caching going one, or maybe IPs are getting blocked?

Yesterday there was a DNS problem for an hour or so. It seems your connection is still caching some results (not found or wrong IP)...It's working fine for me on Vodafone cable.

I don't know how a device I used today that's never seen the geekzone URL before on a connection I used today could be caching yesterdays results. I'll keep looking. Those who said it has been working have either been on VDSL or cable though. Any ADSL users having issues?

Working fine now.  For both Vodafone and Telecom lines on all devices.  Weird.
