I've seen this issue on my machines sparactically as well.  Last night, I 
could not get to  Fetch was reporting "No route to host", 
when I did a traceroute it was dying on a Yahoo router ... I didn't think 
to write it down at the time so I can't tell you which one.  I'm on 
Comcast in the Philly area of PA for reference.  It came out of Comcast, 
went to Level3 and then to Yahoo. Oh, and I wasn't even able to ping it in 
my case.

Hope this helps someone track it down.  I can currently traceroute all the 
way to the site, so whatever the issue is it seems to not be an issue at 
the moment.  But, I've seen this at least twice in recent memory, so 
something appears to be flakey somewhere.
