Ahha!

I happen to know Kris uses Comcast as his ISP, or at least he used to. It's possible that he left a relic in the code from his testing, and that's why what is probably one of the DNS servers he uses, is showing up on your system!

I'll take a look at the code when I get a chance :)

Thanks Richard,

Tim
