Comcast got ya down?

Comcast has been down for a few hours now.
Problem is with their DNS servers.

Here's a fix if anyone's interested...

Use the following static DNS servers under your router settings:

208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

Cool, that's Google's DNS. I posted OpenDNS server addresses. Either will do.
