OpenDNS makes your Internet work better
Today I found a great new (at least to me) free service called OpenDNS. They provide free DNS servers that anyone can use.
Why would you want to use their DNS servers instead of the default ones assigned by your ISP? OpenDNS offer cool features not found in most other DNS servers, such as:
- Automatic identification and warning of phishing sites
- Faster DNS lookups due to geographically distributed servers with bigger caches
- Automatic redirection to the correct domain for common spelling mistakes
And best of all, their service is free and only takes about two minutes to set up!

Awesome Pumpkin Carvings
This year I carved two pumpkins for Halloween. Like the last two years, I used the great stencils from Zombie Pumpkins.
I chose to carve "Jolly Roger" and "Tongue Lashing". I really enjoy carving pumpkins with these stencils and get very excited waiting to see how they turn out. I was quite impressed this year and have received compliments from everyone who's seen them. Take a look and enjoy them yourself:
