Default Anyone else having issues accessing city-data from Earthlink?

I've been having problems accessing the forums since yesterday evening... basically www.city-data.com and city-data.com stopped resolving from Earthlink nameservers. I contacted support at earthlink, and they had me try all their nameservers:

ns1.mindspring.com
ns2.mindspring.com
optns1.earthlink.net
optns2.earthlink.net

None of them will resolve... had to edit my hosts file (using an online-dns tool lookup from another provider) to even be able to post this.

So, just wondering if anyone else has this issue? Or maybe can point me to a direct-help email address for city-data? Thanks

A number of people (myself included!) have had trouble logging onto City-Data over the past few hours. Hang in there!

Yes, we are having network issues (DNS servers). We are working to fix them and they should be resolved shortly.

I haven't been able to get on all afternoon. I guess I managed to slip through a crack a little while ago

I've been speaking to another member by yahoo pm, who is in Tampa Bay Florida who says he is using bright house/road runner broadband and hasn't been able to get on since yesterday evening.

Please get it fixed fast, he's going through CD withdrawals and is driving me nuts


Thanks

I couldn't get on since last night.

To make matters worse, my computer blew up a couple of hours ago, due to a power failure. Just hooked up an old computer! I AM addicted to city-data!

Going to have to get that computer fixed and buy a new (one that works) surge protector.

Anyway, good to be back on. Missed EVERYONE!

It scared me. I thought that my virtual world had come to an end..... Just like when the power is out and I keep forgetting and try to turn on the lights. I just kept trying to log on, googling for other links, over and over. I finally had to resort to real life.
