Oh come on. We both know the internet is a series of tubes.
I started my computer career in 1964 back when computers really were tubes.
But as long as I have your attention, I'm considering a personal DNS server either running on my desktop or as a dedicated machine. I've run Treewalk DNS in the past and was happy with it but that's no longer available.
I'm open to suggestions or being told I'm wasting my time and money.--
