Since you use you might appreciate the Google Public DNS (I actually prefer one company to have my info than to spread it to other companies...)

Thanks. I'll look into it.


It turns out that the problem was caused by blocking certain categories of domains with OpenDNS filtering. By unblocking everything, I was able to establish the connection. The strange part is that instead of getting an OpenDNS message that the domain was blocked, I was getting an RSS certificate error instead.

Side note: Google Public DNS does not provide domain filtering. Thus, although it would speed up browsing, it would not allow me to filter content, which is another reason I use OpenDNS.

You didn't slow down because you're old; you're old because you slowed down.
