@Xen2050 8GB/day is pretty normal.

comment Does it matter about the amount of the swap area in Linux system
@RyanGooler True enough. My point is that increasing swap can allow programs to use up more physical ram. It's only a few MB but it's better than nothing :)

@RyanGooler This will force linux to keep old data in RAM even if it has not been accessed since boot time.

comment Is it possible to ping an address:port?
@glglgl Ah, didn't see that. It's odd that it still works with a backslash.

comment What is a external reliable IP address to ping to check if internet is available?
+1. IIRC, Windows also has an API for checking the level of internet connectivity using this method.

comment What is a external reliable IP address to ping to check if internet is available?
@DavidSchwartz I think the definition of "internet is up" is quite clear: "Internet" refers to IP transit (to all Tier 1 networks and their peers). DNS has nothing to do with this.

comment Are routers limited to number of devices?
Why are you worried about 15 devices? Worst case scenario: the network becomes slow if all of them max out the pipes.

@Ramhound To date, I have never seen a "troubleshooting tip" on a company website that is actually useful.

comment How to wipe free disk space in Linux?
...raises the suspicion that it is actually encrypted data. You may die under torture for not revealing the decryption key. Heh, that's exactly what I was thinking. I guess that means I am paranoid...

comment Downloading Proxy Script
@leepfrog It is not caused by an extension. Chrome does this by default.

comment Downloading Proxy Script
Why the down votes? This message appears whenever you connect to a new network, and there is nothing to elaborate. I have seen this on both mainline and canary.

comment DNS leak: Looking up own hostname with DNS queries
@vonbrand lol Actually the proxy I am using at the moment (to do all these tests) is tor. Sending my data through three servers is not very useful if the exit node has my name ;)

comment DNS leak: Looking up own hostname with DNS queries
@davidgo , vonbrand: Are there any disadvantages to hardcoding the hostname to 127.0.0.1 ?

comment DNS leak: Looking up own hostname with DNS queries
@vonbrand I am afraid that the hostname is leaking. If I connect to a proxy and query my hostname, the proxy can map my hostname to the data sent during the connection. Later, if I connect to the same proxy (through intermediate proxies) it knows that the data sent in the new connection was sent from the same machine that sent the previous data. BTW It actually looks up the hostname almost every time I run a test program (firefox on google.com).
