DNS.. depend on 'em

In More ways malware damages internet infrastructure: DNS servers, Justin touches on the problems malware cause to local DNS servers and suggests people use the root servers directly. I had to do just that because the dns server on my dsl router is crap and would keep dying trying to talk to IOLBB’s server. I installed BIND as a cahing nameserver and everything worked fine.
Later I found is an IOL dns server I can use but at least I know it’s easy to setup a DNS server on my machine.
God help us if a tool came out for every Windows owner to query the root servers easily. *gulp*
