I would try using dig to figure out why my DNS wont resolve the address.
I would start by taking the first listing in resolv.conf and doing:
dig @dnssever debian.slimdevices.com
and also just:
Results 11 to 13 of 13

I've just had a similar problem. I'm using OpenDNS and couldn't resolve anything. I've edited my /etc/resolv.conf and removed the OpenDNS entries and put in my local router and it can resolve addresses correctly.
I'll change it back and see what happens, could be an OpenDNS issue?
Update: I've changed it back and it still wouldn't work till I rebooted, something somewhere must have been cached and it didn't like it.

Finally got a chance to tinker over the weekend and I think the problem was my router somehow not properly handling DNS requests. Initially I was using OpenDNS, changed to Google's DNS servers with no joy, tried my ISP's again, same thing. I replaced the DNS server entry in my resolv.conf file (it had been my router IP, now directed to either OpenDNS or Google's DNS) and voila, everything works swimmingly. Thanks for all the suggestions.
