today on <http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/02/15/0432259>, we see:
"Charter Cable's DNS servers have just started resolving all invalid
hostnames and pointing them to their own error page. The About page
states: 'This service automatically eliminates many of the error pages
you may encounter as you surf the web. No software was installed on
your computer for this service to work.' It has an 'opt-out' page, but
when you use it Charter simply sets a cookie that makes their page
redirect errors to Microsoft Live Search instead!"
One more reason to use OpenDNS, where you can actually opt out of the
custom error page.
