Re: connection timed out

Thank you for reporting this.  Interesting to say the least.
I'll try this when I get home to see if the results are the same.

while, e.g., a connection done within the same window of time to


is immediately, successfully serviced.

Okay, now the magic: using tor, I can read the article sought.


   tor down => 504 Connect to existentialistcowboy.blogspot.com:80 failed
   with other sites being available, of course

   tor up => http://existentialistcowboy.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
             shows up

   purge the caches/whatever [polipo, tor, browser], etc.


Notice the REPEAT ... I have done it a couple of times, the last one at,

   504 etc.

   success with tor

And notice that I have experienced the same with other ... how to say?,
non-mainstream/non-flat EEG sources of info too [today here, there; tomorrow
in a third place etc.]. Indeed it's my main, so far only, reason to use tor
[there is no risk to reveal anything to the *watchers*, this is a *secret*
that belongs to the family of Polcinello ones].

To let us understand, another site which I can only reach via tor at times is
voltairenet.org, a VERY HIGH quality source of info.

I hope it clarifies also the thing of the 'zero-knowledge' of above better.
