comment What kind of power port is this?
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 pretty sure i've used apc ups units that use those connections. That was in europe. Quite common i thought until i saw this question.

yeah, but you can just redirect both stdout and stderr to /dev/null

comment I just assembled my computer and the motherboard started smoking, how do I know which parts are affected?
check the motherboard isn't shorted on the case. Like say if a screw got dropped during putting together and wedged behind the board and the case. -- I have done this, it sucked. (and it was subsequently permanently broken)

comment Is there a way to set a static IP's last 3 digits only in linux?
i think we've a misunderstanding because we're saying the same thing in different ways. You need a reservation in each subnet for the same mac, yes. It should be possible to do that with dhcp via per-subnet dhcp scopes, but it's certainly a bad idea.

so basically, switches act a bit like old-school hubs for unknown frames.

it'd still be unique because each rotuer is in a different subnet and the reservation third octet would differ based on dhcp view per subnet. It's a bad idea though, it's over complicated, and puts a weird significance onto the value of fourth octet, which seems illogical.

why is the last octet (the fourth number) significant at all ? dns updated from dhcp is your friend. You'll need to put a static reservation on each router for that device though.
