Comcast DNS Issues

As many know Comcast have been having DNS issues in many of their larger markets this includes California and Florida and during Cyber Monday 11/29 the outage was even more apparent. ZDNet has released an excellent article on setting up your computer with more stable DNS servers such as those provided by OpenDNS and Google DNS. We recommend using these where possible as you will notice more stability in your web browsing lookups.
