"Hmmmm, that's interesting," I said to myself. Soooo, then I tried to load the webpage itself. No dice. "What's going on here?" (I said to myself once again.)
So off I went to the blog of Digg to see if Kevin Rose had posted any news. Low and behold, I was met with zip, zilch, zero.
So, then I decided to ping the site and see if I even got a response. You can do it too if you like. Just hit START in windows, then type "ping" and then the IP address you are pinging. A ping will tell you how much time it takes for one packet of information to be sent and bounce back. Here's what I got when I pinged Digg.com (22.214.171.124)
Ping #1: * [No response]
Ping #2: * [No response]
Ping #3: * [No response]
Ping #4: * [No response]
That's not a good sign, no, not at all. I did find out
some interesting information
