Its not resolved

As of Saturday morning I have had issues with many sites overseas , and mainly connecting to WOW servers

short periods of sites not being found

and character or instances not being found in wow

after a few minutes of trying its ok, but not for long. Try a bit later an it all starts again

Like I said, something happen Sat morning/ Fri Night and its has bee crap since.

The usenet servers are back, but there is still no response to curl, let alone a browser, from www.giganews.com

What's with forum staff now directing users to emails & tickets instead of posting viable fixes here on the forum so other viewers can try the same? Seems to defy the whole point of the forum.

If it's an email server refusing an Exetel address, changing your IP is unlikely to help, unless you think someone is targeting just you. Which company runs the receiving email server? (ie, the part after the @)
