And you are rude. Solution: learn some manners. If you don't have the 
attention span to read more than a few lines of prose, I'm not

demonstrated, plenty people do.

There's no point in forgetting the DNS caching, it's the only reason I'm 
doing any of this, otherwise I already have a perfectly functioning 
network protected by a simple layer of security and there would be 
nothing to do. And where would the fun in that be? :)
