My Router

I have a Dual Pentium III @ 1GHz with 1GB of RAM and a 18GB Hard Drive. I am thinking of shoving in 4GB of RAM and caching the entire DNS root servers.

..I also have 2x Quad Port Sun Gigaswift cards, 2x Digital DE504's, a dual port Compaq NC3131, an old SMC 8432BTA 10BT/AUI/BNC card, and an Allied Telesyn AT-2560FX.. See below (Router).

This sucker handles DNS, DHCP, VPN, IPTables, Dansguardian, and a handful of other services. It runs Gentoo (at the moment) and runs rather well.

You might want to look a little closer at how DNS works.

I'd love to cache the DNS root servers. Seems that the gov't owns them and can do whatever they want with them.

I find myself greatly curious how much problem's you'd have browsing with even just 1month old records.

They'll all be Owned by Anonymous any day now - or right after Ron Paul assumes the Presidency.
