Martin 2 - dnsmasq 1

but as usual, dnsmasq has a cunning plan

       -H, --addn-hosts=<file>
              Additional  hosts  file.  Read  the  specified  file  as well as
              /etc/hosts. If -h is given, read only the specified  file.  This
              option  may be repeated for more than one additional hosts file.

Can also be specified with the "addn-hosts" setting in the config file.

bam!! Martin 2 - dnsmasq 2
