Excellent advice and information,
Indeed there was another thread on ILUG recently, again about OpenDNS,
where Colm Buckley mentioned that if you have a broadband connection
there is no reason not to run your own DNS server (resolver).
As Rick mentioned, one of the main advantages is that you can block
certain URL's. Of course this involves some initial setup but on top of
everything else, running a caching DNS server at home will be
educational to say the least and of course quicker.
