Site won't load in IE/Mozilla, localized issue

We are having a very strange issue with a site not loading. Our blog, www.livingspirituality.org, will load on computers everywhere else, but not at home or our office. I've flushed the cache and cookies, run anti-spyware/virus, flushed the DNS, pinged the site (the ip numbers work but not the site name) and we're running out of things to try. It won't load in either mozilla or IE7. I haven't had problems with any other site loading. We've had friends in other places check it, and it loads fine for them.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The home/office are in the same small town but not the same building. I don't know how the issue could be localized in that way, but it seems to be.

Thanks!

Is this happening on just 1 computer or on every computer in your network?

If it's just 1 computer then I would check the host file to make sure there are no entries for www.livingspiritualality.org.  

To check the host file in XP and/or Vista go to:

c:windows -> system32 -> drivers -> etc -> hosts  

Make sure there are not entires for your website.  If so, delete the entry and it should work.

If this is happening with more than 1 computer on your network, then I would check your DNS server.  Check to make sure the host file is pointing to the right IP address.  TO do that log into your DNS server:

GO to start-->admin tools-->DNS  expand your DOMAIN-->expand Forward Lookup Zones and click on your domain.  This will populate the Right Hand Pane with all the DNS entries.  Look for the site name in questions and make sure it has the correct IP address.

Good luck.
