Submission + - In case of a DNS outage, we're doomed. (posterous.com)

udiw writes: If you think that using IP address instead of the domain name will get you far, you're wrong. In fact, almost 40% of the top-1000 websites in the Internet return a completely different page when you use the IP address to access them and when you use the domain name. These include most Google services (except search), Wikipedia, WordPress (including TechCrunch), Engadget, eBay and others.
