Wikipedia gone?

Just wondering if it's only me. My girlfriend mentioned that wikipedia was down last night, and I thought nothing of it. Sites go down. But I just tried now and find that I can't reach it now either. Is it just something on my end? Or is it gone for others as well? Anyone hear anything?

Ok, now I'm just not sure. Sometimes it works and other times no. Cleared all my cookies, and temp files. Restarted. Still only sometimes. Everything else is fine. Guess I'll keep messing around and see what comes of it.

It's mostly working for me now. I'm not sure why it stopped. Everything else has been going just fine, part of what led me to believe it might have been a site specific "cookie" type problem.

I deleted cookies, and restarted, no luck. I went in and did a much more thorough search and destroy mission for cookies and temp internet files, and restarted, so far so good.

That's about as far as I like to go deleting stuff. There's a lot of things that I think I don't need, but I'd rather not go on a rampage to free up disk space I don't need and end up messing something up in the process.

Any further problems and I guess I'll seek further help. Thanks for the checks here.

See, now on that one, Wikipedia works fine, but says the article has been deleted. Methinks something else is afoot...
