| I've decided to give unbound(8) a try — now to see if it helps....
having been running it for about a week now,
it does seem to have solved the issue.
as Keith says, installation was trivial,
the only issue I had was I had to edit
to use localhost (127.0.0.1) as the 1st choice
nameserver, with Generalissimo Google™'s new
service (18.104.22.168) as the 2nd choice, and then
run ‘resolvconf -u’ (it's not clear if there
ever was — or now is — any point to running
resolvconf(8), but that's a different(?) issue).
thanks & cheers!
