Seems my ISP has got the DNS for TDPRI stuff tattooed on or something.
Still getting random "Why are you still here?" messages. Haven't been able to hack into the ISP yet and flush their stuff... :mrgreen:
EDIT: how ironic that I got the message when I submitted this message! :lol: About to see it again I fear. Oh well, time will heal it I guess.

My work box is doing the deed successfully, but not the home one. I did the whole "flush DNS" thing, but to no avail. I suppose the standard computer fix of "turn it off, count to ten and turn it back on again" may be in order when I get home.

Yeah, the flush DNS thing can't flush your ISPs settings I read when trying to figure it out. Weird thing is it was still happening on some pages ... then it started on ALL pages. Dunno - might be getting handed around the ISP's servers n routers n stuff.

Yep, I can't read or post anything.

I did the flush thingy last night with command prompt , as admin...... and ran CCCleaner... which had a DNS clear setting to tick....
when I logged on today the site/page came up as normal.... seems to be OK here...
I shut this box down overnight too... maybe that clears it as well?...

If your ISP's DNS servers offend thee.... Don't use them. There are thousands of free DNS servers you can point your router to. Even Google offers them.
You don't have to use the DNS addresses your ISP provides for you.
Search, free DNS servers".
By the way, some ISPs cache their router tables for up to a week. Also, your router may be caching, too. Reboot it.

If you are using Mac OS 10.4 or 5 and Safari forget the flushing stuff, it's rubbish. Just go to the Safari menu, empty cache, then reset Safari, quit Safari then reopen. Worked a treat after wasting time trying to flush.
