comment Does a nmap scan against my own IP go past the firewall?
just to clarify by "the firewall" you mean a hardware firewall out on the university network yes ? Not the firewall of the actual machine your scanning ? i.e: Are you worried abuot the network admins getting annoyed at your scanning, or are you trying to check your local firewall works ?

comment what are the two little bars on the left side of T400 Laptop
thats the release buttons for the pcmcia card(s). The blanks typically arn't full depth so sometimes they dont engage the release, but when you have an actual pcmcia card in the slot it'll pop out when you push the button back in. I believe on thinkpads these buttons are typically blue.

comment Tracking my home IP from anywhere on the internet?
id suggest giving it a go, it really is the normally "correct" way to solve the issue. there are plenty of workarounds, but they likely wont be as good.

comment Why certain IPs redirect us to 0.0.0.0?
0.0.0.0 is the "any ip". It'll match anything basically. That's why in a routing table the default gateway is usually given as 0.0.0.0 ip.of.default.gateway

comment Tutorial for setting up a Linux machine with 3 monitors?
I should advise you not to expect alot. I recently got to the end of my tether and ended up buying a new larger monitor to replace 2 smaller ones to go from 3 to 2 monitors because linux triple-head and multi-gpu hardware acceleration is nothing short of rubbish. Dual head is good times, Triple was just faf, pain, and annoyances. I got 3 monitors working in 2d, but no xrandr meant everything from googleearth to my mp3 player's visualisations (and everything in-between, particularly most games) just crashed out., or my personal faviorite - would crash X losing all your unsaved work.
