Wiki link broken? wiki exists?
#1
Help!
I've tried clicking on the link to http://wiki.ldraw.org/index.php?title=Main_Page from the ldraw.org home page menu, and entering http://wiki.ldraw.org/, and never get to it. I know I've had issues with Comcast's DNS, but switched to Google's DNS servers (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4).
I've tried both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
There are links to the wiki in the forums that don't work for me either.
I'd like to ensure that I'm working to the latest versions of specs and such, but if I can't see them, I leave myself open for rework as recommended by the reviewers.

wiki.ldraw.org works fine for me here at work. Try OpenDNS at IPs? 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

still no luck - I can 'ping' and 'tracert', I can find it on Google, and see a cached version of the main page, but you'd think I was home in Maine - 'ya can't get theya from heeya'

Pinging wiki.ldraw.org [173.236.209.255] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 173.236.209.255: bytes=32 time=102ms TTL=54

and even http://173.236.209.255 isn't coming back for me :-(

Wait, I've got web on my phone. Yep, can see it from my phone.

I suspect another hosted site on that server (apache2-udder.minkar.dreamhost.com) caused Comcast to block 173.236.209.255:80. Damn censorship.

After some attention from tech support today we find out its something strange with my Modem/Router combo - Motorola Surfboard SPG6580 - If I turn off the firewall on the router, I can hit the pages - bizarre.
