Having a DNS cache doesn't fix your unreliable ISP: You need to lodge a
complaint with your ISP.
What, no! that was the case for having local cache and not forwarding queries to the
ISP's name servers at all. Because those are not reliable.
See my previous email, about flushing the cache on network change.
Yes I saw. About automatic cache clearance etc. I agree. Those are features to be
requested from the DNS software or maybe NM. I've been using 'dnscache'
without any trouble whatsoever.
