If your in the UK and are a customer of virginmedias broadband service, you may wish to turn off its ability to intercept bad dns requests, which it will then send you to a customised page giving you suggestions on what you might have been looking for.

To turn off this feature, login to selfcare and then click on the link below (it does say its in my virgin media but f**k if i could find it)

https://my.virginmedia.com/advancederrorsearch/settings

Click save and then your good to go, its then back to just resolving names like a good dns server should do :)

(even if it is cached dns ;) )

EDIT: seems you dont even have to login to your account to do it

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
