      So is it likely then that the SKY DNS servers aren't working correctly, so having these 'back-up' DNS servers in my firefox settings is handy thing to have in the future in case the main sky DNS servers go doo-lally again?

      definite issue, but not been to work to confirm yet.

      sites I can't access:

      digg.com
      Hotmail
      Ebay
      EZTV (though that also has an issue with a recent server failure)

      changed to opendns, and resolved easily enough.

      will let the folk at Sky know, if they don't already.

      Hey All,

      I actually work for sky and the issue is only affecting sky customers but not all.

      Engineers are working towards a fix but no timescale has been given, something similar happened last year and i remember it was down for a few weeks.
      Sorry, just being honest
