Just shutdown the bloody DNS servers and let the chips lay where they fall.

Thats exactly what I said! Some systems will go offline. Fine, it's good
for the local economy when a tech has to come fix it. Some people just
don't learn until they have to pay out a little hard earned cash.
Computers have something in common with cars. both require maintenance and
proper care. If there machine or network is using one of the rogue IPs,
it's due to lack of maintenance and proper care. :)

Yep, some of us might actually make a little money on a few

I've been filtering emails and cell calls about that dns changer
announcement. It was on the main page on foxnews yesterday or the day
before... :(

Bigtime. Generating unnecessary panic'd support calls too.

Just do this test http://www.dns-ok.us/
and there won't be any surprises come shutdown day.

If you or I had to do that test, something is seriously wrong on our ends.
