good info from bill, thx.
OK, i did add the URL to my privacy site list and now it works, even after a reboot
so for fun i decided to undo it to see if could get it to fail again.
ARGHH, now i can't seem to get it not to work.
earlier i did blast something off to godaddy support so now i'm not sure if its my "remembered" privacy settings or if godaddy fixed something on their end
can someone test again and report back
