comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
SSD's newer than 2013 are quite reliable now. Putting a swap file on them doesn't seem to wear them out any faster than a regular spinning disk. I've got a 2 year old drive with a swap on it and it's still going well. And I have much less RAM.

comment No route to host: I can SSH to myself via the IP my router assigns me but not to myself via the IP my ISP assigns me
NAT hairpin is only relevant if he's trying to telnet 65.x.x.x from the inside network.

comment Get and reserve an available IP address from a dhcp server to use for my ip camera
I think what you need is the camera to tell you what the IP address is that it got from DHCP rather than your C# app try to assign it. Otherwise you should set up your c# app to take an IP address to assign to the camera and whatever the user enters in you can check with a ping to test if IP might be taken already. In any case, you should not assign static IP's in dynamic space. By the way, your question is off topic for serverfault.

comment Mikrotik & Bluetooth coexistence
Actually it apparently is an 802.11 feature where a flag in the SSID tells bluetooth devices which frequencies to avoid. But the bluetooth needs to cooperate. Some Wifi points also detect bluetooth devices and share the frequency to avoid conflicts apparently. They do that with other wifi devices already. When I enabled it in tomato it helped tremendously.

By the way, no need to add benny to sudoers, just place him in the sudo group which you've already done. The only reason to put benny specifically in sudoers is if you want him to have a different set of privileges than the sudo group. In your case they are the same.

comment Can I disable USB Ports outside of the BIOS?
Destroy the drive if you're concerned. It's greater peace of mind than using a so called secure erase.

comment Linux shutdown in 30 seconds?
I beg your pardon. You're right it no longer works. It actually used to work. I think the shutdown command isn't as flexible as it used to be for some reason. This used to work on 10.04.

comment How can I scan the local network for connected devices? (Mac OS)
Right, that also didn't work for me. On the Mac you not only need to use the -t 5 option, but also move it to be before the ip. i.e. -c 1 -t 5 x.x.x.$ip. Otherwise it'll error and bomb out.

comment Why does pinging a local router return “Destination Host Unreachable”?
Interesting. I've not got this setup anymore so it's no longer a problem. And I've since changed my wifi routers. Although since then I've had other weird issues occasionally with wifi where devices couldn't see each other when they were meant to be able to. Sometimes they would and sometimes wouldn't. The solution was to turn on proxy arp and all the issues went away.
