I am a developer committed to open source software.

I have worked for Mozilla, helping develop the Gecko Platform, the rendering engine behind Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird, and many other third-party products. I am also the lead software engineer for Lil Joe Bean and President of Glass Tower Studios, LLC.

I also volunteer my time to numerous projects, including the Crystal Space SDK, which is an open source game engine, and the Eridanus project, a game design project. I am very passionate about video games, especially with regards to high performance graphics and immersive environments.

When I'm not working or developing open source software, my major hobbies include martial arts, video games, sailing, and playing my violin. I hold the rank of 3rd Degree Black Belt, Green Sash in Wu Chi Chuu'an Kung Fu. I am also a certified level 2 ice hockey referee for USAHockey.

comment how does my router know about my hostname and how to find out others computer's hostnames?
Basically, what's probably happening is that the DHCP server is getting the hostname from the clients when they request an address. As such, the hostname (along with the IP address) is cached until the DHCP expires. Try manually expiring the DHCP leases and see if you get new hostnames, after changing the hostname on the local machine.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize until after I posted what you were actually asking. Take a look at this post: fixunix.com/networking/… You may need to setup a DNS server if you want to control how the names are resolved on your local network.

comment Dual output speakers and headset
Could I use the fact that I have multiple sound cards in my machine to get this to work? I.e. is there some way I can get windows to output to BOTH sound cards?

comment how to launch app from USB with no admin rights
Why do you need to do this? I hate to be picky, but it doesn't seem like there are a ton of legitmate uses for this, especially since the administrator has blocked it. I could be wrong, though...
