( and I don't care about the Dell/Google deal -- one evil does not excuse another evil )
I was about to recommend ifirefly, but it looks like they just shut down (which probably explains why my DNS queries got really slow on Tuesday). Anyone else offer a similar service?
I just run my own resolver :(
Wait, was there ever any aspect of OpenDNS that was not evil?
well, that's pretty damned opaque.
what's yer point? simply that they stole the CNAME, or something else?
