Oh no, not again! Can't access Audifans.com ... (PacBell/SBC DSL )

I am sorry to have to do this ... but I am having problems getting to the
Audifans server, and I am having problems getting support from SBC/PacBell
... hopefully I can start piecing together some clues with some gracious
help from other audifans.  

While I have been around the block with various DSL services, right now I
have an account with PacBell, which is part of SBC Communications.  I was
able to access the audifans site and mailman lists without a problem ...
until the server was relocated a little over a week ago.  Now I cannot bring
up the site either as www.audifans.com or from the IP address itself
(  When I send e-mail to any of the audifans lists from
PacBell it gets stuck in a pipe somewhere, and I get "unable to deliver"
messages.  I just spent a while on the phone with SBC ... they did a bit of
poking about ... but they can get the site OK, and since I am not aware of
problems accessing any other site they are unwilling to do anything more.  I
have found that I cannot even successfully ping the audifans server!
Strangely enough, mail from the audifans servers does make it to me OK.  I
have no problem accessing the site or sending e-mail to the audifans server
via the connection at work (AAMOF, I'm logged into work from home now to
send this message!).  

What I would appreciate hearing is whether or not there are any other SBC
customers (PacBell, NvBell, SwBell, ???) who are having a problem accessing
the audifans server or e-mail.  I think that the source of the problem is
fairly local, so if there are any PacBell customers in the area of San Jose,
California on the list, I'd appreciate it if you could get in touch with me
and tell me about where you are located and whether or not you are having
problems accessing the list servers.  

I would imagine that there are a few folks on the list who have a better
understanding about how the internet works than I do who might have some
suggestions as to how I might be able to resolve this issue ... 

Thanks in advance to all of you who can offer information or advice on this!
