it's even worse here. my own DNS queries are quite useless. i have bind9
installed as always, but my ISP uses a cache server. sometimes, my
browser does the DNS query, and connects to the website, just to receive
a DNS error from my ISP's squid. so basically, i query, then the ISP
does a query. and HIS query is what matters to see the page properly.
and no i can't switch, only ISP in this god forsaken land.
