I agree with this,
I've said this before, knowledge is power, the more people that know
about us, the better.

Perhaps the community should start looking into sponsorships from large
data centers or anything/anyone else for that matter, you would be
surprised how many companies would want to support our initiative.

Perhaps, another thing to do, would have support from open source
operating systems, having opennic as one of the default dns (probably
will go along with any sponsored servers we can get across).

On a side note, I have an app for windows (in the works) that modifies
network adapter dns settings for use with opennic. An easy one click,
idiot-proof setup. My main play is for the program to download a list of
ip addresses, and find the fastest server for that particular user,
right now, however, its setting a static server that's in the code, I'm
going to add that feature before releasing it.

I plan on launching 2 TLD's, I will be working on charters and whatnot
for both. The TLD's are .sav and .neo. The .sav will be used as Alex
suguested, and .neo is a TLD I've had my mind set on for a while, just
haven't had the stones to pull a vote on it. (You guys are seem quite
intimidating, but are generally pretty relaxed, haha)
