Sorry, hit send to soon. The answer above is if I ask for the 
authoritative nameserver, if I ask for Resolver (default), it gives me 
an answer, but it is the wrong ip, and I don't know how it got this 
other number. Any ideas? It appears to be another ip at my university, 
so maybe my university did something weird?
