And i continued to be unable on Sunday, then, poof, like "magic", 
this AM i got to wikipedia. I had no problem reaching any other sites 
during those 4 days. And i don't think my computer (a Mac) is 
infested, as someone (reasonably) suggested. I suspect some problem 
with my internet connection.

If it continued today, i was going to call the Filipinos and South 
Asians who handle customer service and technical service, 
respectively, for Earthlink... like that would help. A nice Filipino 
woman didn't know what a dash or hyphen was when i was spelling 
something to her. And i have had techs, who generally just read from 
a script, blatantly lie to me; for example, one said he was sending 
me something that didn't exist).

I'm still curious what was up, and i thought maybe some techy person 
had heard something, but i guess it will remain (ooooh, ooooh) a 
Someone sometimes called Urtatim
