What do you guys like for your /etc/resolv.conf?
D-Existential and N-phenomenological S-investigations:
Who should Darkstar use to resolve DNA DNS requests? Why!?
Eeeks! We can get IPv6 addresses via DNS requests sent over IPv4, but don't we need an IPv6 address or two in our /etc/resolv.conf?
If the DNS system experienced "trouble," would we be better with a longer list of resolvers than two each IPv4 and IPv6? Back in the old days I remember seeing a long list which included, among other things, all of the DNS root servers. Perhaps sending DNS requests to the root servers might not work nowadays.
