Information and Communication Technology undergraduate. I work as a computer technician in a local computer store, and have a fair amount of skill fixing MS Windows problems.

i run my own mail and web servers as a hobby and testbed in hopes it might prove useful for any future employments

at home, i use kubuntu as my main OS of choice. i prefer debian systems, though i do run a couple of CentOS servers.

like my computers, i prefer cold weather, hence why i live on a cold mountain, 700 meters high.

my blood type is C+ (Caffeine), and my mental status is "mental-stability-proprtional-to-computer-proximity"... no medicine found yet, not that i'm trying :D

comment How do I forward a SSH port from any interface to a specific IP?
like i said, port forwarding in the router isnt an option, there's more than 1 NATing device the desktop is behind, i have to configure them all, and i believe the second one, a custom firewall is out of bounds for me to touch.

comment Is it possible to do Single Port Forwarding by machine name?
in your router's DHCP settings, there should be a "reserve ip" option, where you can reserve an IP for use with a MAC address (or hardware address).

comment Is there an OS that allows the same name for files in the same folder?
yes, inodes... file names are just a human-readable mapping to these inodes, but if a system is to rely solely on them to distinguish between files, then filenames are completely irrelevant to the system.

comment Is there an OS that allows the same name for files in the same folder?
I doubt any such system exist... how would files be distinguished? using inodes alone? then file names are completely irrelevant if so...
