A screenshot of the http://www.sourceforge.net tracert shows that the problem is a router in China Telecom.

The current stalemate could be the recent anti-Chinese protests of Beijing Olympic Games, the 8th August began to be linked in Beijing. start named a few days ago, the author of a popular open-source code editor Notepad + + Source Forge for a boycott of Beijing in 2008, he stated that the action is not against the Chinese people but against state repression, China in 2008 unrest in Tibet.
