Unless you're using Cloudflare's new service, whereupon you learn just how broken some routers are when they treat as an internal resource, even though it's a non-reserved number or network. :-)

But that's not what we're talking about here. Unless for some reason Ian's server is resolving to a different address on Comcast (it's not; they're all showing, DNS isn't the problem here.  I've had routing breakages somewhere a few hops downstream of me on Comcast and Verizon in the past; sometimes a router just dies in a datacenter somewhere and it takes a while for BGP to catch up.
