That would eliminate the need for a DNS on your local network. For outside the local network, I would just use OpenDNS.
That's a good idea. Everything but my laptop has a static IP, so I'll have to try that out.
OpenDNS is great, we use it for a lot of our clients. Sometimes, it will flake out for a short period of time but otherwise, it's great.
I use it for my familes house so it will block MySpace and pr0n sites.
Wonder what chaos would appear if I blocked Facebook?
