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...

@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 ;)

@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).
