Xanga.com

Has anyone else been having troubles with the site? Regardless of how I try to access it (directly, with my laptop plugged into the cable modem; through our router; using other computers, etc), I always hit the http://www.xanga.com/sorry.aspx / "Page not found" page.

I'm wondering if it has something to do with comcast being stupid.... I dunno, I don't have external server for me to test things out with.

No, that's a lie, I do. Gonna go try that now.

[edit]
Huh, ok, xanga works when access with lynx from an ECE computer at UIUC.

Now to install lynx on my local system to try that... all of my browsers, telnet included, reach that Page Not Found page.... so I don't think this will be any different.

Next, what sort of problem would cause an external webpage to act differently based on my IP? 'cause it's not localized on my computer... other computers also return the "Page Not Found" page on xanga. Although other computers tested thus far have all been running 10.4... But I'm pretty sure that's not the problem, since I got the "Page No Found" page by telnetting to xanga.com:80, and doing "GET /"
