"If your Internet pages are loading slow or if you want to make your Internet safer, smarter and more reliable in general, OpenDNS may be of help."

Meh. As for pages loading slow… that’s a stupid claim, it’s a DNS service. But as for your Internet being safer, smarter, and more reliable? Totally. A huge source of Internet connectivity problems is DNS problems, and OpenDNS is, by far, the most reliable DNS service out there. And OpenDNS’s filtering features lend at least some modicum of credibility to the claim of it making your Internet “safer” and “smarter.” The first half of that sentence simply needs editing.

This article seems largely redundant with resolv.conf. James Eder 20:25, 1 August 2011 (EDT)

DNS on both local machine and router

The article states this tip: "Tip: You may also specify these IPs in your router's configuration interface and merely point to your router's IP from /etc/resolv.conf."

Should be pointed that in most cases is both useful to set the DNS IPs on both the router and own machine if it's a laptop? This way LAN users will benefit from having the desired DNS IPs on the router (providing their /etc/resolv.conf files points to it) and also laptop users will benefit from having the DNS set on their own machines while on the road :)
