Yeah, that was my first instinct as well. ;)

However, the DNS *does* resolve properly:

PING doublearon.org ( 56 data bytes
--- doublearon.org ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

It gets the IP, but has no connection.  But the same server, on a 
different IP, shows:

PING bitrelay.net ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=47 time=142.249 ms
--- bitrelay.net ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 142.249/142.249/142.249 ms

(And doing the ping from, say, a U.S.-based machine works fine in both 

Thanks anyway... any other thoughts?
