Cannot load this web site in any browser

I have checked the settings in every browser I have (Mozilla, Firefox, IE, Opera, Netscape) and its settings, my version of SUN Java, every anti-ad/spyware program, my firewall, and even uninstalled/disabled the latter and I still cannot load

Browsers just sit there saying "waiting for...". With firewall disabled, some of the page does load (animation and parts of menu on the right); am able to click on some links to get to the French site and the German site, but the US site - no.

The page source I have been able to see doesn't seem to have anything odd about it, and friends who have attempted access have no problems.

Things never even get to the point where my browsers ask if the site can set a cookie, etc.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Just so happens, my wife uses the stuff and I'm familiar with it.

The website was up and running fine (3/28/05 at 10:54am) when I checked it. It may have just been down while you were assuming the problem was at your end.

Some countries or ISPs block things.

You didn't reveal the country or much else.

Could have been down too.
