Of Web Charts and Public DNS

Google Public DNS

I've been using OpenDNS for quite some time now on the recommendation of a friend when I was complaining about slow name resolution on my ISP. That was about a year or 2 ago. Today Google announces it's own free public DNS service. I'm wondering which is better of the two and I may give it a try over the holidays. If you're wondering what this new service means for OpenDNS, you can read up on OpenDNS' CEO's reaction in a blog post.

HighCharts

There's a new kid on the blog with regards to charting on the web. As per the Ajaxian, this new javascript library is called HighCharts. Unlike, OpenFlash Charts and YUI Charts, this library boasts of generating charts from pure Javascript, no flash ! Looking forward to giving this baby a go one of these days.
