Default can't load bbc.co.uk through opendns

Anyone else using OpenDNS? I usually can't get to bbc.co.uk without
closing and reopening my browser (Safari). Anyone know why this should
be?
I can ping the url but can't get to it in my browser. The url resolves
to 212.58.244.71 if that means anything.

I reset Safari and it seems to work ok now. BBC was the only site I had
a problem with though. Don't know why.

212.58.244.68 is what I get for it (www.bbc.net.uk)

Its got a 300 second timeout so try in 5 minutes..it may have changed/be
changing.

Safari probably caches it

Ah. I just watched it..it (IP address) changes periodically - crude
form of load sharing. One of them must be down and you happen to keep
getting it

To people who know nothing, anything is possible.
To people who know too much, it is a sad fact
that they know how little is really possible -
and how hard it is to achieve it.
