    I have a strange problem. My browsers all seem to be stuck on December 21, 2005, but only for one site. I have Netscape (Mozilla), Firefox, and Internet Explorer and when I bring up Engadget (www.engadget.com) on all three, it is stuck on December 21, 2005. I know there is new stuff on the site, since my laptop, on the same network, sees the latest postings. But on my desktop, nothing has changed. I have cleared the cache (on all three browsers), but no changes. New stuff shows up on other sites, but not on Engadget. Any idea what I am missing here? Thanks.

    I once had a similar problem. Fortunately for me, I control the server that connects the netwrk to the internet. I went into the server and opened up a command prompt and cleared the cache from there.

    Try "ipconfig -flushdns" from the command prompt. I'm not sure if it'll work but it's worth a shot.
