So as more and more time goes by, I occasionally run across people who complain about muds that lag, often because of DNS lookups. It got me to thinking that not many of the existing codebases has ever really done much about this problem. Sometimes it even leads to hosts being unfairly blamed for a defect in how the codebase itself is handling people.
So I guess the time has come for a new poll.
Do we or do we not want to add the DNS Resolver code from the AFKMud site to each of the FUSS package?
I realize there are plenty of other methods out there for dealing with this, but I'd much prefer one that I know works and works well, while avoiding pitfalls associated with multithreading that come with some of the others.
BTW - It would be beneficial for those voting to give their arguments for/against the DNS resolver. Not necessary but would be helpful.
