Wow, thanks for the in-depth follow-up, Roman (and others who
confirmed). Interestingly, I'm not having any issue accessing
www.fox.com or www.akamai.com. I'm speculating that, since a CDN is
involved, perhaps only certain CDN servers/regions are affected. It may
be that I'm receiving fox.com/akamai.com from a different server that is
not affected? It certainly makes "contacting the appropriate parties" a
much more complicated proposition.
(Sorry about accidentally responding only to you personally, Roman...
slip of the click...)
