Switched ISP recently, and now i find myself unable access the comic or anything else. Even the artwork on this forum fails to show up.

Traceroute completes and i can read it fine when i employ a proxy, so i am suspecting that maybe the IP i am now on is blocked at the web host end (connection just seems to stall and then time out).

My host is a local telecom, as well as a data farm for several of the big oil companies. They tend to be a little coarse when it comes to responding to any sort of electronic attack, and will occasionally wind up inadvertently banning access from certain sources.

There's nothing I can do about it, save possibly to switch hosts- however, they've been quite reliable (with notable exceptions) for some 20 years now, and if or when I have to call their help desk, I talk to an english-speaking Alaskan right here in my own time zone, not some guy in an call-center in Bangladesh calling himself "Stu".

My apologies, all I can say is use the proxy for a bit. It usually 'clears up' in a couple of weeks.

Doc.
