Access Weirdness

1and1.com, my Web site host provider, was apparently blocked today by a number of ISPs, including Sprint (through which my own ISP, Embarq, apparently routes its traffic). Don’t know why. I just know I couldn’t access my own Web site. On one of those whims, I installed Tor to see if it would help me connect here.

Seems to have.

Now, whether it’s Tor doing its thing or just the network confusion clearing up at coincidentally the same time, I’m not sure. What’s more, don’t care. I just know I can access my personal site again. Go me.
