the only reason i can think of is that those sites where down. if you can access the net completely, and yet only one or two sites are not working, its usually the servers on their end. those sites may have been down for maintanance. im not familiar with either of them so i cant tell you a definate if they were down or not. so dont worry, i dont think its your computer.
