Generally you have an issue of volume, ie getting enough people to try to 
connect to that web/whatever server.

One idea I thought about was to use the 'zero byte image with java' approach to 
load a "test" into people's browsers which makes that web attempt to a 1/8 
address and reports the findings via a subsequent 'get' to a known accessible 

for example have google, or youtube, twitter, facebook host some javascript 
that does the above in a similar way to the yahoo dns testing:


(I won't insult you by posting some really bad java script that I just wrote 
that does this)

Be warned that there are some privacy issues around this, no more than what you 
naturally see in log files.. but any more logging than the bare minimum appears 
to irritate.
