I followed a link from Yahoo to Forbes this evening and, huh? Hello, World! This is now server 192.168.1.87
Who is 192.168.1.87?
From this it seems more as if there was some router or nameserver issue. I checked the domain registry and, as you might have guessed, forbes.com is well registered, with an expiration date in 2014.OrgName: Internet Assigned Numbers Authority OrgID: IANA Address: 4676 Admiralty Way, Suite 330 City: Marina del Rey StateProv: CA PostalCode: 90292-6695 Country: US NetRange: 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 CIDR: 192.168.0.0/16 NetName: IANA-CBLK1 NetHandle: NET-192-168-0-0-1 Parent: NET-192-0-0-0-0 NetType: IANA Special Use NameServer: BLACKHOLE-1.IANA.ORG NameServer: BLACKHOLE-2.IANA.ORG Comment: This block is reserved for special purposes.

Pinging the domain takes you to 188.8.131.52.

Update. Hmm, maybe it is just me. I checked using a shell account and I can reach the forbes site using lynx using both forbes.com and 126.96.36.199. Interesting, forbes.com uses imrworldwide.com, a.k.a. RedSheriff, Nielsen's baby. Back to topic though, I checked using Remote Desktop from my work, and the site works fine. I think there is something funny with my computer. Reboot?
Update 2. It has something to do with the local network I am on. Both my desktop and my laptop are showing the same message. Strange.Posted by torque at March 11, 2005 9:20 PM | TrackBack
