OpenDNS sucks and nobody should use it.

Their "DNS" behaves nothing like a proper RFC-compliant DNS server.

Hijacked results on any failed lookup:

C:\Users\splerdu>nslookup abxbxbxbcdefg.com
Server:  resolver1.opendns.com
Address:  208.67.222.222

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    abxbxbxbcdefg.com
Address:  67.215.65.132


What happened to my NXDOMAIN error?? Now with google DNS:

C:\Users\splerdu>nslookup abxbxbxbcdefg.com
Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8

*** google-public-dns-a.google.com can't find abxbxbxbcdefg.com: Non-existent domain


And let's not forget their shenanigans from before, like sending certain sites (google) to an their own internal forwarder. Who's to say they weren't capturing your searches, leave alone very obviously breaking SSL.

Some files were lost in the past couple of days and we had to wait for the host to perform a backup restore. Looks like we're back up.

Sorry, I've been having a fever and literally couldn't get my shit together so the payment lapsed.
