Ugh, this is a mailing list, please use real words and not TXT 
messaging / chat abbreviations.  Thank you.

No, it is not easy in many captive portals.  I use a laptop for 
everything, and I tried it.  Sometimes you MUST be using that 
portal's nameserver to "authenticate" or to be approved as a user.  
BIND logs will be flooded with gazillions of "lame server" messages, 
as every iterative query is answered with a non-authoritative reply.

Of course it depends where you go, but for me, sometimes I find 
myself stuck behind portals like the OP found, which redirect all 
queries to broken nameservers.

That said, for people with "normal" Internet providers, yes, it's 
very easy to run your own caching resolver.
