Now we are getting off the topic of DNS and into network
troubleshooting, but try tracerouting to your ISP's DNS or some other
major box. That should tell you something about where the problem is.

However, if you opened up your firewall wide and it still doesn't work
it really can't be that. I would be taking a close look at the box'

``And indeed people sometimes speak of man's "bestial" cruelty, but
this is very unfair and insulting to the beasts: a beast can never be
so cruel as a man, so ingeniously, so artistically cruel.''
(Ivan Karamazov, in Dostoyevsky's 'The Brothers Karamazov')
