Just wondering - are you able to access blogspot blogs with your MTNL connection? I'm not able to, from home; nor is a friend from his office. I'm in Delhi, and funnily enough, a friend using the MTNL landline connection in Bombay isn't able to either.

Am able to access blogger.com to post, though.

I'm getting a Request Timed Out when I ping any blogspot.com url. Sent a screen cap to the Delhi Helpdesk, and I'm told:

Dear Sir,

All the below mentioned site are accessible from MTNL, ISPs network.
Pl. check again at your end.

Gah.

no announcement at www.blogger.com . And people with Sify and Airtel are able to access it. I've mailed helpdesk again...maybe they'll wake up if more people mail them. Please!

using powersurfer. blogspot isnt accessible. domain name resolution is ok. but it just doesnt connect. have they changed their ip? Prolly its a DNS propogation issue. The IP of blogspot that i am getting is 66.102.15.101. What do u guys get? Remember to query blogspot.blogger.com and not blogspot.com
