Just a quick reply. No I am not from NZ if you were asking me, which I don't think you were because my email states I am from Australia. Just thought I'd make that said.

Are you in New Zealand?http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/06/24/0249231&tid=95&tid=133More likely your web host broke something badly and had to rebuild their system(s). IPv6 is the next version of IP, and it's not full replacing IPv4 anytime soon because coordinating the whole mess is cumbersome. It's already in use in plenty of places, and they use it alongside IPv4 just fine.> Australia!I know, that the USA are realy underdeveloped (Broadband,...) > but broken DNS or such issues?The USA is not really underdeveloped in this area, we are just too widespread to have *really* fast pipes.

DNS changes can take a long while to propogate. If your webhost was also your DNS host and their servers went poof, it is possible some people had the lookup cached while some didn't.Email has no particular guaranteed delivery time, and backoff algorithms differ - in addition to mail servers queuing mail up before sending. It happens, mail isn't always as instant as we would like.> Why should I? Can't you see I am using Yahoo!? lol ... Nothing wrong > with my ISP currently.
