    How many people, upon viewing this link, immediately put in the address of the page itself?

    Or if you dont like using a browser use a DNS method..

    Click Start, Click Run, type CMD, press enter

    In the dialog box type NSLOOKUP (the site name you are trying to see if it is up)

    If it comes back with something similar too:

    H:\>nslookup yahoo.com
    Server: XX.XXXXX.com
    Address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    Name: yahoo.com
    Addresses: 206.190.60.37, 68.180.206.184

    Cheers...
