      New Homes by Metricon

      Over the past 30 years, Metricon has grown to become one of the largest new home builders in Australia. We are committed to remaining a leader in everything we do – from customer service to our outstanding new home designs, house plans and display home network – so you know that when you build your new home with Metricon you are building with the best.
      I am using OpenDNS though.

      Try using OpenDNS and see if it works for you.

      Re: Anyone able to check a site for me

      you could change your dns settings to:

      prefered:212.135.1.36
      alternative:195.40.1.36

      these are ukonline dns servers.
