It does seem to be a geographical issue. Just because a site is working for some of us, it doesn't necessarily mean that it works for everyone. It all depends on the path from your machine to the site in question - any problems with any of the links on that path and it could lead to problems such as slow site responses or even loss of access altogether. Such problems could include the wrong DNS information (John has re-routed the site through alternative DNS servers, but this information takes time to cascade through the Web). The only thing I can suggest is that you keep on trying the site. We will be there when you get through.
