Hi everyone, I don't know if I am the only one, but I just had to switch (temporarily) to my ISP's DNS servers because when I was using OpenDNS the site wouldn't load. Is anyone else having this issue?

I had the same problem but I was using Googles DNS servers. It worked this morning I don't know why it was happening. But I am now back to using Comcasts servers

Ok. Glad to know it's not just me. With OpenDNS it said one of the servers went down. I think that is what is preventing the site from loading with "third party" DNS services.

Google just said that it could not find the site.

Ok. And it is still behaving the same way with OpenDNS.

If you could let me know when it changes, that would be great!

No problem, the servers are still not working.

Googles DNS servers are now resolving to here again.

Ok. Thanks for the info. OpenDNS is back up and running now. My ISP had a little "internet blackout" the other day and I think that also contributed to the problem.

That's because it was over the period of a day. It is resolved now.
