[xubuntu-users] Website completely inaccessible from Xubuntu

Hi Gang,

I'm experiencing a weird problem that I can't seem to track the source
of down. I'm hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on
what might be going on and how I can go about fixing it.

On Wednesday morning, I attempted to go to www.schneier.com from my
Xubuntu box (this is the website of security expert Bruce Schneier).
I've been to the site many times with no problem at all. But, as of
Wednesday morning, I can't access the site at all.

Today, I thought it might be a problem with my network so I attempted to
access the website from another computer. It worked! So the problem
seems to specifically be based on my Xubuntu 12.04 machine and I don't
know how to resolve it.

I've checked in the /etc/hosts file to make sure nothing was there and
everything is fine. I've checked my firewall 'just in case'. No
problems. I'm at my wits end trying to resolve this.

Any ideas?
