You're right.  I hadn't considered it, but it is definitely more
likely that it is my own doing.  I moved to this address about 7
months ago, and don't remember ever being able to access that
particular server.  I can still access the www, but that appears to be
hosted at a different ip, so no surprise there.  I'll send you my
outside IP directly, if that's ok.  If it's not me specifically, let
me know, and I'll pass along what info I have from AT&T.  I didn't
correspond through e-mail, so I'd have to summarize.
