Internet Backbone

Are there any websites that show a (near) realtime connectivity map of the internet...like if certain sections have less than normal connnectivity to other certain sections?

The reason I ask is that me (in Alaska) and my partner (near Seattle) can't access a certain site that we've been working on for days.  The owner (in L.A.) has no problems accessing it, though.  Also, I haven't noticed a problem on any other sites.

Additionally, and I don't know if this is related, until last night I usually accessed it without the "www.", i.e., "http://example.com", then all of a sudden I couldn't access it unless I added the "www.".

Sounds like someone is messing with the DNS...

Ditto, Trilotech.  You can proof it out by connecting via IP address... http://{ip address}  from both AK and Seattle.  If you can get to it by the IP address, then you've got DNS issues.

Verify your DNS on the far ends by going to a command prompt and typing in "nslookup".  Then at the > prompt, type in the website address and see if it resolves and who it resolves off of...  You may have to bug your ISP to flush their cache if your website DNS/IP's have changed recently.
