SALON….I’m curious: is anyone else having trouble reaching Salon? For the past couple of weeks my browser has timed out whenever I try to connect. Since other blogs continue to link to Salon, I assume they must be able to get to the site. Why can’t I?

(Pre-emptive answers to the usual questions: (1) No, I’m not having trouble with any other site. (2) Windows XP. (3) Both Firefox and Explorer. (4) I also tried and that didn’t work either.)

UPDATE: As I expected, no one else seems to be having this problem. I turned off my firewall, but that didn’t help. I checked cookies, and they’re enabled. I ran tracert and it got through my router and then died at the next hop. Very mysterious. Perhaps I should contact my ISP? I wonder if my neighbors have the same problem?
