      Weird?

      I can access all 3 sites no problem. So i decided to do a traceroute. For some weird reason it gets to about step 18 - 20 and starts to timeout. This may be perfectly normal but I know NOTHING when it comes to this kind of thing. Is it worth me posting up the recorded traceroute or would that just be a waste of time?

      That's quite common, a lot of sites will block traceroute packets as a (only marginally effective) security measure. There are ways around that but as long as the site works for you it doesn't really matter.

      All but a couple of my unaccessible sites have suddenly become available this evening. (It was nothing that I did! and my IP hasn't changed). Sky must have been working on it after all.
