    So my friend started experiencing a very strange symptom on his MB today that I cannot for the life of me figure out. Any help/insight would be appreciated.

    He cannot seem to load vimeo.com (random, I know)...it appears like their servers are down from the errors displayed in his browsers. Here is what we have tried, please let me know if I've overlooked something.

    - Tried vimeo and www.vimeo.com, same result
    - Changed DNS servers to OpenDNS and Google DNS, same result
    - Different network connection, same result
    - Wifi instead of ethernet connection, same result
    - Safari, Chrome, Firefox, same result
    - Flushed DNS cache on command line (dscacheutil -flushcache), same result
    - Repaired disk permissions, same result
    - Created a new user, same result on a clean login

    Every other computer on the same network can access vimeo.com just fine as well. Thanks in advance for any other suggestions!

    None at all

    The computer can successfully ping vimeo.com however and get a response...forgot to mention that.
