    Anyone having issues getting to sites in US or know specifically what is going on?

    I seem to have a major issue getting from Knoxville, TN to California based sites, including ReallyRightStuff.com.

    Can some of you on different paths get to reallyrightstuff.com? Just looking for some validation that others in alternate locations can get to them for example, and even confirmation that others near my TN location can't.

  2. No problem from Houston, TX.

    New web sight it seems, mind you it has been a couple of months since I was last there...

    I was unable to reach RRS yesterday by their online ordering system, so I called them, instead. They apologized for the website / online ordering system, which is undergoing a major transformation. According to RRS, it was down yesterday.

    ok, try www.htguide.com

    Since Gonzo can get there today and I can't, that's partial confirmation.

    Instant access

    I received instant access to HTGuide thru the link you gave from Omaha, Nebraska.

    Thanks, at least I now know it's either my problem here, perhaps on my network, or a section of the backbone out of my control.

    Thanks a lot! Confirmed!

    Have you tried just doing a couple of pings and a trace route? That'll let you know your path and where it's getting bogged down.
