John: I think Marcelo in Argentina hit the nail on the head.
Apparently, either layeredtech in Dallas or CentOS  is now blocking
the IP I am using today, or has begun blocking all IP addresses from
Colombia,  so I cannot get to the centos web site anymore. Firefox
Cache is cleared, automatically, each time I close the browser. We do
not pay extra for a Dedicated IP from our ISP, so I am starting to
wonder if the one we are using today has been blocked by layeredtech.
Or, all of them...  Lanny
