Sitemeter problems

Technical question for other people with web sites: Is anyone else having problems with Sitemeter? It seems to have been down since last night. Now I can't see how many people click here to see if I know something about sitemeter! It's a great tool when it's working.

You may have installed something that has put a text file on your computer called "HOSTS". Search for the "HOSTS" file (it doesn't have an extension). To fix the problem, remove any lines that have "" on them. You may want to go ahead to delete the entire file because it may causing you problems accessing other sites.
Thanks David. It started working for me later in the day, but I'll have a look at that file. I was only able to test on one computer yesterday, so it's very possible this was the problem.
