Hmm, so if I enter in opera, I get a 404.  If I do it in
firefox I get the rogers/yahoo search page.  WTF?

Also the rogers dns returns the same 3 addresses for all invalid
# host has address has address has address
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

So does it have an address or does it not?  What a weird result.
