Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

USPS is NOT up ... tracking is all screwed up again. Fire the incompetents! Its time to privitize the mail service ... so much incompetence. Here's another example. In Cleveland if a carrier can't do his or her job they promote them. So in my suburb, an experienced worker was passed up for the manager position which went to a worker who could not cut it as a carrier.
