    4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2

    I've used them so long, I can no longer remember how I found out about them. They've always worked well enough that I wouldn't consider giving away another chunk of my privacy to the Goog.

    I've no doubt they're destined to take over the world, they'll just have to do it without my complete browsing history.
    Aloof linux user #whatever.

    I tested off the charts for MENSA. Unfortunately, it was off the wrong end of the chart.

    quick update

    I'm always a little reluctant to try anything that Google puts out there because of their extreme interest in everything that I do online, but I've been using their DNS servers ever since starting this thread and so far they've been working very well.

    Having no complaints thus far, I plan to keep using them until a reason comes along that makes me want to move to other servers.

    Well, for me, the Google CEO thinking that only people doing illegal things want privacy warrants putting the info handed to them in check.

    Heh, I use those when troubleshooting DNS issues on windows machines.

    I switched over to Google's DNS servers about a week ago after getting pissed off at Comcast for hijacking my searches. So far so good.

    I have always wonder why people don't setup their own caching DNS server and go get the information directly from the source rather then rely on the ISP to do it for you. It really isn't that hard. Here is a howto A resolving, caching name server.

    Lazydog, it appears that you failed to enter the URL for your link. Anyway, I've used both, pdnsd and bind in the past, and both worked quite well.
