@freehonest, I believe it's part of the wireshark install. On my windows machine, it's located at C:\Program Files\Wireshark\text2pcap.exe.

comment How are subdomain resolved?
@harrymc, you can see the DNS root servers here - root-servers.org. Looks like we're up to around 200 physical servers backing up the 13 root server names. But yes, I believe the load on the roots tends to be intense. DNS software will often cache responses so it will know net., but when the cache expires it will go back to . to refresh.

comment Using /etc/hosts to redirect traffic during DNS switch
You won't be able to do that with /etc/hosts, which is only consulted by local processes. That is sort of like changing a number saved in your cell phone's address book and expecting calls to forward from the old number. You should be able to redirect traffic on the network level, however, or use @medina's solution.

comment Window 256 characters path name limitation
I think the worry is that there are older programs that have a hardcoded idea of how long a path should be, so that if you try to use them on longer paths, they will explode in interesting ways.

comment How do I disable parking pages on non-existing domains? (name.com)
The question is a bit unclear, but I think he means that he controls example.com, and his DNS host is redirecting non-existent subdomains of his domain. So changing the DNS on the client wouldn't help, because Google would just go to the servers for example.com and run into the same problem.
