    Talking An Amusing Re-direct

    I just discovered this by accident; I was wanting to upgrade to IE7 on an XP machine, so I assumed typing www.ie7.com in the address bar would re-direct me to a Microsoft IE site.

    Not so! Check it out.

    Quite interesting to note that according to BT online they do not exsist. Looking at the telephone numbers I had my doubts because of missing figures. If it was legit then they would be in the telephone book. So someone has registered it incorrectly as happens many times.
