Error(s) you get when you try?
At first glance - sounds like a DNS or routing issue.
Nothing seems (on the surface) wrong with the Apache/2.2.0 (Fedora) server
for Mike Malloy or Bartcop.
As far as your reading, "... something to the effect that people who have
administrative abilities might be most impacted ..." <- not sure how you
made the connection between that and your inability to go to a couple of web
pages in any web browser on a given computer.
I would say that you may have some DNS/routing issue.
- Do you have a static IP address and/or static DNS entries?
- Do you use a router (NAT device) between that computer and the Internet?
- What operating system and service pack level are you using on this
- If you ping the sites - what is the IP address they return?
- Are there other computers connected to the same network that *can* vist
- What specific updates (KB article numbers) did you recently install?
