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.

comment RAM Usage is insane running a game
+1. Using RAM is a good thing. You want it all used where possible, unless you've A) got something more important to use it on, or B) its swapping to disk. In this case, looks fine.
