Either our ISP (EMCALI) is using opendns.com intentionally, or, their
DNS servers have been corrupted. Probably, they are using it
intentionally and their Customer Support is not aware of that. In the
past 10 days, frequently, I ended up at the Open DNS Guide, when DNS
wasn't resolving.

OpenDNS Guide

The OpenDNS Guide is the page your users see when they go to a website
that doesn't exist or isn't resolving. We provide search results and
offer suggestions to help your users get back on their way. This
includes the use of our industry-leading domain spellchecking service
to save them time and make them more productive.
