Which name servers do you use?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I was lurking through my tor logs recently, when this notice comes to my
Jan 23 03:25:05.416 [notice] Your DNS provider has given "$IP_ADDRESS"
as an answer for 6 different invalid addresses. Apparently they are
hijacking DNS failures. I'll try to correct for this by treating future
occurrences of "$IP_ADDRESS" as 'not found'.
Two days ago I've added OpenDNS name servers on top of my resolv.conf,
effectively replacing the Open Root Server Network ones which I usually
use, to try them out. I like ORSN philosophy and way of work but I've
to admit that OpenDNS servers are dramatically faster.
So, here comes the questions: which ones do you use? Are there any other
interesting name servers to try out?
