comment Is there an easy way to do a host lookup by MAC address on a LAN?
Yes, I like that way to find out the IP adress, but I cannot use the MAC address in some software expecing an internet address / URL / hostname. So my question is about how to map the MAC address to some local host address that any software can look up.

comment Is there an easy way to do a host lookup by MAC address on a LAN?
I add some machines or software to existing machines on an existing network. This machines need to use services of already existing machines in the same network. I do not have the rights to install zeroconf to the existing machines, but my machines or software need to use services of those machines reliably. The networks may be modified, routers replaced etc. so I cannot rely on some router's features, nor on zeroconf deamons on the foreign machines. So the only sure way to always identify these machines are their MAC adresses as those won't change this often...

Some LAN routers does in fact show such behaviour by default, and assign stable IP adresses as long there are enough left. However, I cannot rely on a feature some routers have. Some other routers expose linux hostnames in their DNS, which is a cool feature, but again this is not for granted. So when working with foreign networks, I need a reliable name assignment. Which may be done by avahi, if all devices are delivered by me. But foreign devices may not have avahi services running, so the only way to find those devices reliable would be the MAC address.

comment How to merge a git repository once split off without history
Related, yes. But it lacks the continous history I need, as there the two projects that get to be merged are unrelated, while in my case, the second one is a ancestor of some commit in the master repo.

Wouldn't mounting over something be denied by the users access right? And whats wrong with an user mounting over folders he owns?

comment How to acquire a low latency realtime HD video image?
These devices won't work with a laptop. There may be USB3.0 capture cards I think?

Would be good to have a high quality USB 3.0 camera using the USB UVC class. It should be usable without drivers on Linux and OS X this way.

There also seem to bee some industrial vision cameras using USB 3.0. Expensive, usually proprietary SDK, usually Windows only. That is not what I look for...
