Default WEIRD problem

Hi, I've got a little problem for you all.

You know the website Facebook.com? As of today, my laptop can't access it.

On either IE and FF, I get a long wait and a 404. However, on every other computer I've tried within the university, as well as other people's computers in their rooms, it only seems to be mine that's having this issue. Facebook is online just now because I've just seen other people using it.

I've got absolutely no idea, I can access every other site just fine, and I've not set anything to block Facebook, I don't think I've got viruses or spyware.

Weird. Damn weird. And VERY annoying.

Any ideas?

Try clearing the internet cache, cookies, etc. and go back on.

Nope, no joy there I'm afraid. Bizarre.

Check your firewall settings. Either that, or could you have been blocked from the site by the site itself or your ISP?

Use a different browser, that usually clears things up. For example, I can't access this site on Opera. Damn wierd thing.
