    Thanks--I am pretty computer illiterate.   I use programs like this that I don't understand!

    "I am pretty computer illiterate."

    Then hoping you don't drive a car with the same skills about cars.  :shocked:

    "I use programs like this that I don't understand!"

    I see.  But OpenDNS is not a program, but a configurable service.

    Hi rotblitz.

    We spend a lot of our energy here trying to make OpenDNS as accessible as possible, with minimal knowledge needed to get protected.  Maybe a better analogy would be as a passenger in a car that we help drive away from malware. :)

    Best,

    Matt

    And I try to support you with it as much as I can.

    "Maybe a better analogy would be as a passenger in a car that we help drive away from malware."

    Too bad that a passenger cannot drive and decide the direction.  Just the driver can.  :)
    But yes, an auto-pilot for DNS - that would be it!

    It's very interesting to be well informed by this site.

    The answer of mattp1 reveals that he is a smart guy and respectful :)

    I found this quit informing I do know that my charter 30 meg service is as slow as when I had AT&T DSL and after reading this info I looked at where my charter server is 200 miles away from my home town. This must be the reason my home page takes 3 seconds to fully load and 20 more to make it scrolable.
