Net Problems

Has anyone else been experiencing weird net problems this summer? A week ago I had trouble in VAncouver linking to HTMF and my own site. At other times I could get both sites, but no Google ads or CBC links.
All week long in FSJames we’ve had strange problems on ADSLs where things would route to PGeorge and then die…
last night i could get Northern BC sites like HTMF, but hotmail was gone, then the whole damn Net croaked about midnite. Could ping DNS servers, but everything came back unknown host!
