One more question, and I did try to find an answer on my own- what do the
cache flags mean? (Expires column snipped)
dnsmasq: Host Address Flags
dnsmasq: stinkpad.alrac.net 192.168.1.102 4FRI H
dnsmasq: localhost 127.0.0.1 4F I H
dnsmasq: i.cnn.net 22.214.171.124 4F
dnsmasq: m1.2mdn.net.edgesuite.net a509.cd.akamai.net CF
