Life is short, and art long; the crisis fleeting; experience perilous, and decision difficult.

Clarifying process. This works. But the instructions don’t read well.

What is the output of ifconfig? Can you ping anything such as google.com?

comment Should I install Internet Explorer updates although I disabled it?
Internet Explorer is not a standalone piece of software like FireFox or Chrome. It is a part of the Windows OS. Which is why it is a massive headache as well as a security nightmare. You are right to not use it, but you cannot predict when Windows will decide a part of it must run whether you know it or not.

comment Ubuntu bootloader stuck at restoring resolver state after upgrading to 14.04
StackOverflow is a coding site. This question should be on SuperUser or better yet, AskUbuntu: askubuntu.com

StackOverflow is about coding. Lord knows we all have headaches with OS X server, but this is probably best asked in SuperUser or AskDifferent.

comment localhost as hostname confusion
Seems like someone set your hostname to localhost which seems confusing. I have added & edited an answer to help you unravel that mess. It’s not a difficult problem to solve once you understand the basics.

comment Mac OS can't connect to SMB shares after sleep
@PerNoalt: Responding to this thread because I have been dealing with issues like this as well. The default setting for net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack is 3 on 10.6, 1.7 & 1.8. Setting it to 0 solves issues. But 2 should work as well.

comment What's the meaning of “foo”?
@Ian well, when I get to the point a FIXME is needed and I am past the usage of FOO, I just pull out the old FML & call it a day.

comment What's the meaning of “foo”?
I know there is a jokey—but well researched—history of foo but I can personally say I use it when I code for the following reason: I rarely (if ever) use variables or coding that has the letters foo in it. Thus, by placing comments thats simply read // Foo! near problematic coding I have a quick & easy way to go back & debug issues when my patience has returned. ;)
