Sparkfun site down (alternate link here)

Sparkfun moved their servers and their DNS crapped out on them.

To access their site, use this link:
http://204.144.132.37/commerce/categories.php

SoR once had the same problem, and it took 2 weeks to get it working again :-X

It's working fine now, at least for me.

Still not working for me. It's been out since yesterday evening.

Probably means the DNS is still propagating, a good thing, which I hear takes up to 3 days.

Admin, are you still using your ISP's default and most likely crappy DNS servers?

Try using OpenDNS, their servers are much better then any generic ISP's servers. Plus they block known phishing and virus riddled domains. And by this experience, must update their records fairly quickly.
