Setup Google DNS under Linux

So a few months back the owner of this blog asked me to make a Windows app for him that would auto-setup Google DNS with just a click of a button, and I did, and after trying it out on my machine, I noticed a bit of a speed difference, and I loved it, however, I have since moved back to Linux, and I have re-discovered how to set up Google DNS in Linux (namely *buntu).  So I thought that I would share.

First of all, lets give a simple explanation for what DNS is for those that have no idea.

From Google’s own site (and I love this explanation)

The DNS protocol is an important part of the web’s infrastructure, serving as the Internet’s phone book: every time you visit a website, your computer performs a DNS lookup. Complex pages often require multiple DNS lookups before they start loading, so your computer may be performing hundreds of lookups a day.

Ok, so yeah, there we go, it is where your internet goes to get the IP numbers that actually run the internet, that is associated with website names, say google.com, or even therightguy.info.

How school is important for me

Hello everyone!

Now that I started school last September I didn’t have much time to write anything on my blog… But I think we all agree that school is really important…. especially in IT!

If you don’t have a certification and/or a diploma you don’t have much credibility… That’s what I learned in the past years… The more I go trough my course the more I discover its benefits. Which it’s obvious anyway… It is such a relief for me to go to school as before I was working somewhere that i had too much responsibility for what I was able to actually do… Learning under pressure can be good when you have a solid background in the domain. But when you don’t really know what you are doing well that’s another story! Plus doing this alone is really a nightmare!

Even with my experiences and knowledge I already owned when I started that Network IT course, it was basic stuff that I used to to before, I still learned things in the first 3 months of this course even if it was stuff I already did in the past. At least one time a week I was saying: Damn why I didn’t do that that way? But yeah you can say that I could have learned this by myself.. but when?

Anyway this course keep me busy and I LOVE IT!

A post every week is my goal!

As you may have seen i do not post really often on my blog… That’s not good at all

So today i decided to put more discipline in my life and make a post on my blog once a week is my first goal.  It can be more than one a week or every day but it will never be less than one post a week.

I really hope to see you soon! At least Next Monday 🙂
