Hi, I read this blog everyday, but I haven't been able to access it on either of my computers for the last few days. Has anybody else had the same problem, or is it just me? I know the Marmot can still see it.

http://metropolitician.blogs.com

Thanks.

Thanks. I just don't get it. I'll try computers at work and see what happens.

Hm, it worked for me just now, but I haven't been able to get to the site in a few weeks from my home computer.

Sorry to keep boring everyone if it just turns out to be me, but now I can't get http://partypooper.blogs.com/ either. Smee, was it just the Metropolitician that didn't work for you, or anything else that ended "blogs.com" too?

Thanks for everyone's help.

I can access the site from home, but not from either of my workplaces. I though the internet filtering at work was going hyper again (as it sometimes does) but I suppose it is probably something else if people are having problems at home too.

Both links work in fox and exploder. Maybe it's a service provider thing? Maybe your ISP has blocked those sites? I'm using KT Megapass and I don't have any problems.

Thanks, I think you've got it! I changed my internet company on Thursday. I would have thought of it earlier but absolutely everything else works, including porn sites, so I've been thinking it was something to do with the site itself. I didn't start to get suspicious until I noticed that that partypooper link wasn't working as well.

My wife will call the internet company tomorrow and see what's going on. But one final request: if someone can tell me one more blogs.com site I can check to confirm its definately a blogs.com problem before I call, that would be much appreciated.

Had a guy from LGPowerCom come round this morning, he concluded there was nothing with either of my computers, and admitted there must be something wrong with the network. So he called his Busan headquarters, they agreed, said they'd work on it. Half an hour later after he went, we got a call from them thanking us for bringing it to their attention, they had no idea that blogs.com sites couldn't be accessed, they said it must be a bug in their whole network. They're busy talking to head office in Seoul to try to sort it all out.

So, I think its amusing just how many people are trying to access the Metropolitician as I type this. I hope Michael Hurt appreciates it! Laughing
