ISP slow at updating DNS records?
I have a site hosted with a domain, and we are switching servers. I change my nameservers and wait for them to update. When I look at the status of my site a few hours later it says that it is up. But when I go to it in my browser it is still pointing to the old nameservers. When I go through a proxy server hosted outside my network, I see the updated nameservers. But again, when I try browsing it without a proxy I get the old site. I have cleared all cookies, saved sessions, offline stuff, and even restarted my modem / computer. I don't understand why I can't see an updated website, but everyone else can. Should I consult my ISP about this issue? Is it their fault?

Did the dns flush and didn't really do anything. I guess my only option is to wait.

what i normally do, a day or so before i am due to move, is change the TTL on my DNS records to something stupif like 60 seconds.

As above - change the record expiration value, if your DNS server can handle increased traffic as a result.
