If you're outside of the US and sick of not being able to see good TV online or just tired of waiting for Hulu to get your favorite shows,
you'll want to check out TVGorge and its huge archive of shows.
Enjoy  :)

Want the fastest DNS-server in your vicinity?

Hi, you can install this little program I’ve been using to automatically pick a DNS provider from a pre-configured list.
The program is called DNS Helper, and here's what it does:
'DNS Helper Is a small tool that will backup your current DNS address and then switch it to Google Public DNS for a faster, safer, more reliable internet experience. It runs in the system notification area and provides a popup menu to switch your DNS servers in a single click.'
It's likely at least one of the programs pre-configured DNS servers (other than Google) will be in your benchmark results.
The programs pre-configured DNS servers are Google, OpenDNS, Comodo DNS, DNS Advantage, Cisco System and ScrubIT.
Note: Some DNS providers, such as OpenDNS, have some protection built in, usually through Web content filtering and anti-phishing capabilities. To configure a router, go to the manufacturer’s website for directions specific to your router.

That's it for now,
