[about rogers cable service]

| That hijacking of name resolution failures is pretty sleazy and I let
| them know it. Lately, they've been having lots of transient DNS failures
| on of all things, Google properties.

| Anyway, my solution to this issue has been to point my IPCop machine at
| two DNS servers on completely networks at colo facilities in Toronto and
| Chicago that we use.

I run a DNS server on my gateway machine (connected to the internet
via Rogers).  That server does not use any forwarders: it walks the
tree itself.  And of course it caches.

Rogers' DNS servers have crapped out enough times that I just work
around them.

My gateway is a small old PC.  I don't know whether consumer routers
can easily run a DNS server.  Surely OpenWRT can.
