Having a bad day, John?

There's nothing wrong with wanting to run your own caching nameserver. All
of the Unix boxes around here are configured with local caching
nameservers. They don't consume much in the way of resources and this way,
we don't have to spend a fortune on big honking dedicated nameservers,
because the query loads are reasonable...
