Great! Thanks for checking into that Alan. Not sure what crack that
namebench app was smoking. But that opendns subdomain does exist and
appear to be a proxy to google. The namebench app is a 20% project of
a googler, maybe they're unhappy w/ OpenDNS for some other reason? It
did recommend OpenDNS for me though... who knows??!?!?!!
