    Hey Mike, you mentioned OpenDNS in Show #315. I’ve been using OpenDNS for some time now. I’ve also been using a DNS benchmark as well to see how well it stacks up with other DNS servers. It’s from Steve Gibson at GRC.com and can be found at http://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm . I’m also using a caching DNS server (bind9) on a local Ubuntu LAMP server as the primary DNS on my router. Bind9 provides excellent response times on already cached DNS look-ups. The OpenDNS dashboard says that my activity appeared to drop by a large margin after I started using Bind9 which makes sense since most look-ups are to places that I’ve been to before and are already cached.

    Stay well and God Bless.

    Clyde
