What do you get when you try to resolve the address directly?
~$ time host www.debian.org
www.debian.org has address 188.8.131.52
That ain't molasses.... :)
This opens a whole new perspective for me. Not to derail the thread,
but I get:
$ time host www.debian.org
www.debian.org A 184.108.40.206
The man and info time did not make clear to me what "real", "user" and
"sys" refer to. Would you inlighten me? What is the "A"? Why zero time
for the user and sys?
Beats me, I'm the average Joe that sits in this Ferrari called debian
GNU/Linux and says, "wow!" :)
Looks to me like your computer is faster or less busy than mine. man
time does answer your question, but I can't explain it further.
