blog lost in europe?

its now semi official. i've had someone else besides germany report that they no longer can look at my blog.

anyone know what's happening? is it just me or is it the blogger content warning that ISP's are taking as gospel?

please please email me or post in comments if you know what's happening.

UPDATE

seems its a browser issue according to recent comment:

It also seems that the code of blogger has changed so that older browsers do not work any more. An update to the latest IE or Firefox should fix some of that.

OK in Germany/Arcor. And yes, there is a stupid warning.

Ok, here are technical informations: there are repairing actions south to Italy. four weeks ago the Internet Backbone between Asia and Europe was damaged. Now are the repairs on the way and the internet-routing between the continents is rerouted. There could be problems for one or two days in Europe Asia or Australia to get the infos from USA.
All other probs are normally caused by "error between ears". Sorry but i haxe to work on this every day. In these countrys you report disconnections, its very unlikely to have censorship.

Greetings (from Germany). Your page was inaccessible yesterday - that's right. It was only a DNS issue though. The IP couldn't be resolved. This has nothing to do with your browsers.

You're doing a great blog, but stick to the nontechnical stuff, yeah? ;)

i'll try to stop sharing my thoughts on string theory and mutiverse models too. :P

Still inaccessible from California. I can access by going through a google search to one of your old posts. Once I've bypassed the explicit material warning I can read your pages fine. That suggests to me that the problem is on blogger's explicit material warning page. This is backed up by the fact that when I do get the warning, it doesn't display correctly.

Update from California:

I updated to IE 7.0, and I can now access your site fine. THe problem is definitely with blogger's code for their adult content page.

i've been looking at the blogger help forums and a lot of other people have the same issue and are as furious as i am.

so no fixes as yet bar what has been suggested so far.

if the content warning wasn't there or if it wasn't interfering then it would be fine and appropriate but its just causing problems.
