I've been trying to get to www.pbs.org for some days now and Mozilla
times out.

ie. it seems to get stuck at alter.net's Godforsaken network. Anybody
got an idea what's going on here? 

BTW, I'm using pdnsd & I'm wondering if it's cached an old record or
something or have alter.net fouled up and routed the packets to
/dev/null or its equivalent? 

TIA.
