If you think they block the DNSCrypt protocol itself, you can try dnssec-trigger http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/projec... which tunnels DNS queries over standard TLS.

Good news for people who spent money on plugins for Aperture.
Having to buy Imagenomic's plugins again for Lightroom makes me super happy. Not.
You can use OpenDNS "Family Shield" for free: http://blog.opendns.com/2010/06/23/introducing-familyshield-parental-controls/
All you need is to change your DNS settings.
UDIDs are commonly used in order to estimate how many users an application has, especially on applications that don't require people to register an account.
Tons of web sites and ad servers are also sending cookies for this very purpose. It's not bullet proof, but it's better than nothing.
UDIDs can be also useful in order to block users (spammers, people sending illegal content, etc) on social networks, as it's more difficult to buy a new device that it is to create a new account.
While it won't help for onroad routing, Pincaster might help you to store 2d geographic data and to easily display it on a map : http://github.com/jedisct1/Pincaster/blob/master/README.markdown
Seriously, why is Opera doing this?
Mplayer also supports the AALib for ages.
Date a native speaker.
Is there still a lot of Bind users out there?
NSD and Unbound are way better, but they aren't the only worthy alternatives.
They used to have 4 users, now that have 10. That's one dramatic rise.
Whoever hasn't coded with GfA-Basic or Omikron Basic never experienced how a fun and versatile language it was.
How come nobody realizes that ChromeOS isn't any different?
For the sake of security, I highly doubt that resources editors and hex editors (in order to patch executable files) would run on ChromeOS.

Nginx has a completely decent documentation: http://wiki.nginx.org/Main
And some tutorials to begin with: http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/request_processing.html - http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/server_names.html - http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/configuring_https_servers.html
Right. Upgrade to a modern HTTP server like Nginx http://www.nginx.net/ or Lighttpd, you won't regret it.
And if for some reason you really need Apache 1.3.x, this code is maintained by OpenBSD and an enhanced version is shipped with the OS.
Looks like screens in Avatar!
