Some tests from my home Comcast connection tonight showed less than 
desirable results from their resolvers.

The first thing I did was to double check that the bookmarks I use when 
visiting my banking sites all begin https. I was happy to see I had the 
sense to create them some time ago, by hand, with the https.

Even when I receive a notice of a new statement or pending payment on 
something in the email, and I KNOW it's valid, I'm still visiting it 
from the bookmark.
