I am a high school senior in New York, studying lots of interesting stuff including Comp Sci and music and math. I play the trumpet, flugelhorn, bass, and guitar. I have used Apple gear (Macs, iPhones, and iPods) for years, and have become a cheap IT guy for local small businesses. I have recently started iOS development, see my website for more info!

I dont know.... next time I'm at that setup I'll check it out. I always plug into AC so I'll have to remember. It also only happens with that one monitor.

comment What steps can troubleshoot OS X when some sites do not resolve on Snow Leopard?
Can you also post the contents of /etc/hosts? I doubt its the issue since DNS resolves, but just curious.
