positon.42 and dnsmasq as a DNS proxy to resolve .42 domains

I am now the owner of a .42 domain !
.42 are not official domains (yet). Official top level domains are managed by ICANN and served by root DNS servers.
To resolve .42 domains, you have to query a DNS server knowing .42 domains.
Here is my small contribution to the 42registry.org wiki, explaining a way to configure it with Ubuntu:
The following allows you to use Geeknode DNS only for .42 domains while keeping your regular DNS provider for other domains.
Install dnsmasq :
aptitude install dnsmasq
/etc/dnsmasq.conf and add the line :
Restart dnsmasq :
sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq restart
/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf, then uncomment or add the line :
prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;
Now disconnect and reconnect to you local network, to refresh the /etc/resolv.conf file, then test it !
