When I request Stack Overflow from my home system, my system shows the following error:

Oops! This page appears broken. DNS Error — Server cannot be found.

Could you please help me solve this problem?

If DNS is that horribly borked, you can override. For example, on windows edit %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and add:

69.59.196.211   stackoverflow.com

then clear your DNS (ipconfig /flushdns) and you should be in business.

But easier: wait for DNS to fix itself ;p

You don't need to clear the DNS after modifying the hosts file. Anyways this will only partly work, you would have to add all domains used by stackoverflow this way –  Andreas Bonini Sep 15 '10 at 13:32
