Dudders spells "Dynamically Updating DNS Duly Embracing RSA SIG(0)" (with some poetic license). It points a domain name to a given IP address using the DNS UPDATE protocol and a SIG(0) signature. It is designed with embedded systems in mind and is especially useful as a dynamic DNS solution for a home modem/router with a dynamic IP.
namebench finds the best DNS servers to use for your machine, benchmarks them, and outputs pretty graphs to tell you why they are optimal. It supports multiple data sources such as Alexa, your browser history, or tcpdump replays in order to generate the most relevant and individualized recommendation.
