From my home, I can't open Stackoverflow.com. Here's a tracert:

From work, I can reach Stackoverflow.com, with a tracert ending in:

 18   180 ms   178 ms   182 ms  206-192-226-18.lsnetworks.net [206.192.226.18]

 20   178 ms   182 ms   177 ms  vlan5-cvo-colo2.peak.org [69.59.218.226]
 21   179 ms   178 ms   177 ms  stackoverflow.com [69.59.196.211]

The strange thing is that the home trace almost gets to Stackoverflow.com, but can't quite reach it.

Any ideas?

Perhaps your IP is being blocked by SO due to some suspected voting irregularities or overuse: see this blog post. If I were you, I'd email the SO team (team@stackoverflow.com) with this data and see if they can help.

Thanks for the reply, I've mailed the SO team. Kinda curious! I've not been very active the last few weeks, and don't run scripts or scrapers. –  Andomar Mar 29 '10 at 21:00
    
Turns out I was blocked for excessive traffic for setting Opera to refresh every minute. I had no idea this was excessive (RSS readers must be doing much more?) So far the block is still in place –  Andomar Mar 31 '10 at 19:19

Can’t reach stackoverflow.com

Trying stretching your fingertips bit further - it's probably just barely out of reach. Maybe a little yoga?

If that doesn't help then I'm afraid your only choice is to move closer to it.

Good luck!

I am tempted to upvote due to hilarity; I am tempted to downvote due to not an useful answer. So I suppose I will do neither. :) –  Ricket Mar 29 '10 at 20:56
