Halp!....IT Bleg

The following sites are amongst those that are not accessible from my computer;

Instapundit 

I checked, and, interestingly, 4-chan, 8-chan, and 420-chan are down too. This is interesting not because they are dens of inequity, but because (for a variety of reasons) they are all known to be on completely different servers.


However, this condition, which is consistent across Epic, Safari, Opera, Vivaldi,(Mac-side) Midori and Internet Explorer (Windows side) and has been for just over 30 hours, now seems to only be affecting my machine. 

What could account for this?

UPDATE: Oh dear. It appears that Zero Hedge is inaccessible as well, which not only results in a cray-cray clickbait deficit, but could indicate involvement by the Omnipotent, Ubiquitous THEY.

UPDATE 2: OK turning off the Wi-Fi at the box and re-starting it finally solved the issue. I have no idea why that should have worked, but it's always the last thing I do before calling Verizon.

1 In order, I'd generally try:

1. Flush DNS cache (Windows: "ipconfig /flushdns", Mac: "sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder").

2. Switch to Google DNS (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4).

3. Reboot.

4. Bitch to ISP.

2 Confirm all listed sites available here on the Left Coast.  (ISP: Frontier)  JGreely's advice +1'd.

3 As they say on "The IT Crowd" "Have you tried turning it off and then on again?"
