There’s no denying it. The holidays are officially here.

My family will be en route to San Francisco by tomorrow morning and come early Thursday, the house will smell of baking turkey and sound of screaming football fans. (Not kidding about the screaming part. The neighbors have complained.)

It’s at this time of year, more than any other, that we’re compelled to pause and appreciate what we have – family, friends, health, a place to live and food to eat.

If you’re traveling to visit family or friends this week, I urge you to share your knowledge of OpenDNS and help keep them safe from phishing. Perhaps they don’t know what phishing is, even. Think about how much you’ve benefited from the service and know you can pass the benefit along. Take two minutes to add 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 to their Internet preferences and know you’ve done them a service – one that will give over and over again.

If you choose to share OpenDNS, tell us about it. We’d love to hear.

PS – A reminder to print the instructions out before you travel. If you don’t know what type of router your friends or family use, our single computer instructions for Mac and Windows are a good way to go.

PPS – If you live in a part of the world that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, this is still as good a time as any to tell friends and family. Giving thanks shouldn’t happen only once a year, anyway.
