    Anyone else using OpenDNS? I usually can't get to bbc.co.uk without
    closing and reopening my browser (Safari). Anyone know why this should
    be?
    I can ping the url but can't get to it in my browser. The url resolves
    to 212.58.244.71 if that means anything.

    I reset Safari and it seems to work ok now. BBC was the only site I had
    a problem with though. Don't know why.

  3. 212.58.244.68 is what I get for it (www.bbc.net.uk)

    Its got a 300 second timeout so try in 5 minutes..it may have changed/be
    changing.

    Safari probably caches it

    Ah. I just watched it..it (IP address) changes periodically - crude
    form of load sharing. One of them must be down and you happen to keep
    getting it


    eg
    $dig any www.bbc.co.uk
