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.

comment Multiple switches - how does it work?
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.

comment Synchronize two directories on linux pc
+1 for btsync. i also think its ideal for this. Also its ok to necro an old question with a good answer. Particularly an otherwise unanswered one.

comment Identify AC Power Cord with rotated pins
These sockets are very common on say, APC UPS units, due to the extra power load needed.

comment Switch or Router for LAN party?
Thinking about this from the other angle: if a game is used over the internet it'll use X amount of internet bandwidth for a known number of players, usually not too much (relative to LAN speeds), and X should be far less than any decent switch can handle.

comment How to use the Internet while Heartbleed is being fixed?
Yeah, but reusing passwords is a separate fail really. My point was two factor helps mitigate the severity and longevity of the aftermath, but yes it won't help with actual bug being exploited.

comment How to use the Internet while Heartbleed is being fixed?
@ramhound I mentioned in the comments before the comments got removed, two factor helps because once a site has a new cert issued any passwords an attacker may have had are no longer useful. Because there's no point changing a password until after a new cert is issued (and servers patched) what you gain is instant re-securing of the account from possible credential leakage that may have occurred while the attacker had the private key. Also, twitter and Facebook are important as they can be used as single sign on for many other websites (including this one I believe?)

@abstrask in fairness, he also said: "if this turns out to be something like the Y2K bug -- then we are going to face criticisms of crying wolf."
