I'm not sure this is possible. As I recall user dns lookups are handled by ISP servers.

Thoughts?

Several people mentioned "resorting to using IP addresses" to that end I added OCC & everything else I care about to my rigs hosts file.

I'll be at work most of Saturday anyway so meh. Unless this event screws with the stores systems in which case "Hello Chaos"

I am DUMB, okay? Dumb as a post! Think I'm happy about it?

I heard about this, but no "official" channel I've looked for seems to support this.

Besides, this seems more like a LulzSec operation then Anonymous. LulzSec does it for teh lulz (go figure) whereas Anonymous (the group as a whole at least) fights for causes they believe in, and I'm not sure how this would help serve them....

I'm set. I have Comcast, and out here I've noticed the DNS server goes down at least 2 hours a week, absolute minimum.

So ever since, I go through my bookmark changes about once a month to save the server IPs to a text document: I never delete any entries, in case I later decide to visit that page again. Because my internet experiences this without anon's help :doh:
Anyways, I doubt even Anon could pull this one off without getting caught. So I'm with the previous post:

I'll believe it when I see it.

CPU-- AMD Phenom II X3 B55 @ 4.2Ghz

MB-- ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3

RAM-- 8GB CORSAIR VENGEANCE DDR3 1600Mhz @8-8-8

GPU-- 1GB GTX 560 Ti @960Mhz

HDD-- 4,044GB (Multiple varying 7,200 RPM drives, SATA II/III)

PSU-- COUGAR CMX 750 (750W Bronze)

CHASSIS-- NZXT Phantom White, Modded

 

I have a habit of abusing edit. Don't worry, it's 99% just restructuring my post because I'm not the most organized speaker. I don't go back and delete things.
