It is all "you mileage may vary" I have just driven down to where we live in the week mostly, and that has done the trick for me  

But changing towns is a bit drastic, when we set out virgin were still mostly wrong, here is sky and seems all right.

on linux you just type in:

dig myfastforum.org

at the command line.
Windows I'm sure has an equivalent somewhere.
We don't run any windows systems, which is why I don't think this was malware our end. Linux is very safe in that regard.

I'm in the US and have nothing to do with your UK phone/Inet providers.

It must have been a server problem.

Still is scary, it is so random and so incomplete. If this really is/was our account being compromised, why just myfastforum and why was I able to get back in and put things right so easily?

I'd like an answer here, if for example when I was in London on a hotels wifi a week ago I had logged into Dotster there would be a smoking gun... well actually there would not be, because (1) it did not happen and (2) the dotster login is https, but you see what I mean. I want to be able to point to something here.

virgin is still giving the wrong ips. I have sent a report to them. But ISPs are not exactly good as a rule on dealing.

I'm not saying this is over, but virgin have started serving the right ips.
Basically any legit ISP/nameserver will sort itself sooner or later.
But in the arcane world of DNS that process can be very erratic.

e.g. with virgin earlier today it went from wrong to 50/50 to actually looking worse than that, it is now for me at least for the moment looking 100% right.

But I would not stake anything that it will be the same for everyone and won't regress for a while.

still no joy here.  VM customer. .turned router off for a while and cleared cache/cookies etc on puter but still no luck.. .usually turn router off at night so am hoping I can get in tomorrow. .if not dunno what to do otehr than changing DNS servers in router to open source and am pretty sure Virgins new routers/hubs stopped allowing us access to that part. .
