    Can't visit computing.net

    For some strange reason I haven't been able to visit a site called computing.net . I know this has happened before but I can't remember hwo I corrected it. Anyone know what I should do? I get the 'timed out' error and it is very slow to get to even that.

    I can't visit it either, and while ping resolves the domain into an IP, I don't receive any packets. It's not your problem, then, but with their site.
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    computing.net uses THEPLANET.com

    Unfortunately they had a fire the other night and are slowly getting back up to speed.

    There is an update thread at:

    http://forums.theplanet.com/index.php?showtopic=90185

    The above link is extremely slow but does get there eventually.

    Thanks so much for that info. Hope they didn't lose too much! I am able to get onto computing.net now and someone is helping me with my printer. Hard work opening the damn thing but worth fixing being a laser printer.
