Default Re: What is going on with this site?

Access is intermitent at best, and comming up with "unable to reach host" at worst. I've done a traceroute, and it looks like "Theplanet" is dropping packets on one of their routers: As this is nVnews's host provider, it appears to be an ISP issue. The traceroute is as follows:

Being unable to get into the forum direclty (before when I was able to get to the front page, the random dropping of packets would prevent full browsing down to a forum link; and errored out in browsing links down); I did send an email to what looks like Theplanet's tech support dept, with indication the site is down, and similiar results to the above traceroute (the one above is a newer one made just now). I made it however 5 or so hours ago, and it was after 5 pm EST, so no gaurentees it might get directed somewhere tonight.

Also, I'm not their customer, so they might not want to hear from me... The above is what's happening in the trace however, to the website here.... If they only want to take service interuption reports from their customers (rather then from visitors); the above should be useful info for MikeC, in helping to identify what's going on.
