Completely off topic for this blog, but interesting nonetheless: Verisign yesterday reported that they processed more that 48 billion DNS queries per day in the second quarter of 2008. Wow.
VeriSign also maintained 100 percent uptime for the DNS system during the second quarter, as it has for the past decade. I think this must be one of only a handful of cases in the industry, given how elusive even 99.999% uptime is.
