John: Thank you for doing that additional testing! I came in here just
before 3 A.M. and powered up the ADSL modem, IPCop box, etc. Probably
have a different IP than I had yesterday. Still can't load pages from

One thing that I noticed yesterday, when I pinged centos.org was that
the ping times were varying a lot.  I did not mention that yesterday.
However, at this time, the ping times for centos.org from here are
about the same as they are for my 2 web sites, which are on servers in
different NOCs in CT. Within approximately 5 ms. I also found that the
site I could not load last year is now loading, without any problem.
Sounds like you found a problem they can fix and that they are not
blocking IPs from Colombia.    :-)   Lanny
