[nSLUG] mozilla.com webserver down?

Yesterday I wrote it work for me.

I used the Network App in Debian and added 24.222.0.75 to the DNS server 
list, until then I only had the gateway address and what ever DNS 
address Eastlink provided to the router. The thin clients running from
 the server also have access to Mozilla.
