the internet on my computer has not been working very well for the past 7 hours. i was checking a big list of proxies on scrapebox when it stopped working and i saw that i forgot to check the "use proxies" box on the main scrapebox page, so i figured that was the problem. this isn't exactly the case though. im using my roommates computer on the same ip address and it is searching google just fine. on my computer, i can rarely get any page to load up. even when i type a site in the address bar or use yahoo. i tried using private proxies and im getting the same results. google only sometimes works, yahoo only sometimes works, typing in url's only sometimes works...but the podcast catcher, that streams the feeds as i play them, works fine. my internet connection is fine. i dont really know what the problem is. any ideas?
