I'd google it, but..

Is anyone else having this problem?

DNS server down or possibly hijacked within your system?



Try using    OpenDNS at   208.67.222.222  and  208.67.220.220
    and Google   at      8.8.8.8
rather than the one's from your internet provider.

I don't really understand the DNS thing.
And it's over.

But it was weird.  I was using a wifi connection at a cafe, and nothing else was wrong.  I was using several other sites and they were loading easily, but google wasn't working for about the last hour I was there.  I kept trying to reload it and it wouldn't work.  But everything else was working.
