problems connecting to Dreamwidth

We've seen a handful of people reporting that they're having problems connecting to Dreamwidth. We're trying to narrow down the problem and figure out if it's a problem with the routing on our end or if a major ISP is having routing issues reaching us. (Right now, it's looking like the fault isn't in our network, but there may be steps we can take to fix things if we can identify what's going on.)

If you know someone who's having problems reaching DW, please get them to email with the results of a traceroute from their computer to That will help us identify where the problems are.

Edit: Strike that! [staff profile] mark found something earlier today that might have explained the problem and fixed it. If you're still getting the problems after this point (6PM EST, 2/13), email us traceroutes then, but most people who were having the problem should notice it's gone away now.
