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.

comment Why does my computer hesitate to turn on?
indeed, same behaviour here. If the fans dont spin up it'll (hopefully) power down before damage occurs.
