Most ISP's DNS servers totally suck. Mine has a tendency to direct me to their own search page whenever it feels like it.
It's supposed to only do that when a lookup fails, but it does so other times as well. I don't want to be redirected if I
mis-type something, just give me the error. Most folks would be better off using an alternative DNS server:
