Richard, thanks for update.
Just wonder what happened with 1.71? (silly curiosity, you could ignore it wink )

But I have problems getting to www.lbbooster.com
Opera browser say me "Could not locate remote server"
If I use http://just-ping.com/ to check it, I see really big number of "Packets lost" (90%, 100%)

However, I was able to get it from http://www.rtrussell.co.uk/
It has a link to LBB in "New on this site:" part, though this page says "1.70". But page linked indeed new one, 1.72.
Same ping tool shows that it is much more reachable.

I am embarrassed to admit that what I thought was such a simple mod that it couldn't fail, turned out to break opening a serial port! Fortunately the issue was spotted very quickly.

Clearly my testing regime wasn't up to scratch on this occasion, for which I apologise.

lbbooster.com is an 'add-on domain' of bbcbasic.co.uk. It's hosted by MeirHosting, who have a very good record for reliability and connectivity (they have servers in both the UK and in the States).

I tend to modify that page only when there is a major release of LBB, not a minor update like 1.72.

It seems to be better now; try it again.

Bad luck, I just cannot get in ("Could not locate remote server")
And that ping service shows it as bad as yesterday.

I dunno. May be it is range ban or something
(btw I several times had similar problems with Alyce's Restaurant site, but as for now it works)

Googled for "online proxy", selected one at random (www.gogowebproxy.com) - indeed it allow to open a www.lbbooster.com site.

But really, I'm OK as far I could to get it anyway. Getting via http://www.rtrussell.co.uk/ just fine for me.

Would you be kind enough to run 'tracert' on the troublesome URL and send me the report? I can then get my hosting provider to find out what the problem is.

Tracert just returns me something in lines of "Unable to resolve target system name www.lbbooster.com"
(actually my system says it in Russian)
Same about bbcbasic.co.uk.
So this should be DNS problem of my provider, somehow.
I tried using my cell phone provider but results are the same.

As you say, that's a DNS problem. You could try adding some more DNS servers to the list. The setting is in 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties... Advanced TCP/IP settings... DNS... DNS server addresses, in order of use'. Google provides a public DNS you could try:

http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Thank you Richard
Adding Google DNS as secondary DNS server fixed it for me.
