OpenDNS makes my life easier

We were waiting to move everything into our office until after we had the crucial element – internet access. After dealing with the devil incompetent customer service representatives Verizon, we finally got it going. Unfortunately, we kept having problems with certain sites, especially sites with sub-domains, not loading on the first try. It took a couple refreshes to get almost anywhere. LAME.

Greg said he heard about something that sounded something like that might help called OpenDNS. All it took was setting up different DNS servers in our router, and HOT DAMN – our connection not only works better, but is at least 5 times faster. I’m not the only one who thinks this is awesome, (and here) but like whoa, it is.

I think it’s totally possible that your DNS is five times faster (especially compared to Verizon) and I’m glad to know we helped. I’m don’t think we can quite claim credit to making your whole pipe 5x faster though. Wish I had that power.

There’s certainly no question that with a good DNS things certainly load snappier and faster. That initial delay-delay-delay-quick-load people are used to with broadband is gone. 🙂

This is just a start for us, lots more cool stuff in the pipeline.
