dig seems to be OK

I’m still waiting for the news of why this thing happened..


I used “dig facebook.com” and not “dig www.facebook.com”.. ARGH!!!! Anyone has dig result for www.facebook.com? I pretty much believe that it has something to do with Akmai’s distributed servers


hi all, i believe that, this issues come some the distributed akmai server. If you are on Linux/Unix/Mac, this is what you can do:-

sudo -i
echo "  www.facebook.com" >> /etc/hosts

then start browsing to facebook 🙂
