$ ping git PING git (126.96.36.199): 56 data bytes $ host 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer advancedsearch.virginmedia.com.
I am so very grateful to my ISP for deliberately sending me incorrect data (I forgot to set up my DNS search domains on my new laptop) just so they can show a crappy web-search-assist page to people using browsers that don’t auto-Google things typed into the address bar that don’t “look like” addresses (thanks Chrome).
So very very grateful.
UPDATE: It was pointed out to me that one can turn this off via a link in the top right of the webpage but, currently, following that link eventually leads to you to a Tomcat 5.5.27 404 page. Great.
(Yes I know I can / should just use alternate DNS servers / fix my search domain / use DNSSEC etc.; my point that my ISP should not issue malicious lies still stands)
