comment WD Caviar Green freezes server before boot
Sorry I should have said that, the freeze happens in both IDE and AHCI modes. Also, since I posted the question, I tried the following: Unplug the Caviar. Power on the system, and stop GRUB from auto-selecting the OS. Plug in the Caviar, wait for it to spin up, then allow GRUB to continue with lé boot. This had no effect, the drive never showed up in /dev. Also, it probably doesnt matter, but the drive is exFAT formatted. I have the Ubuntu exFAT driver installed, but the machine isn't even getting to Ubuntu, so...

comment Is the Commodore 64 compatible with VIC-20 software?
Oh ok cool thanks, I'll give it a try then. It looks like the VIC-20 cassettes I ended up with have a flange that prevents 'em from going into my Commodore tape player, but I payed $1.00 each, so I might as well file one off and see what happens... thanks!

Awesome, thanks! I didn't know about nmap, but my mucking about seems to have worked quite well - I've taken my system from nmap seeing it clearly as OS X to having it churn for 60 seconds and come back with "wtf?". Thanks alot!

comment Mac OS X TCP/IP fingerprint obfuscator
@WarrenP ya, I'm unfamiliar with the concept myself, I'm just working off what Wikipedia told me. As far as I understand it, it uses MTU and TTL along with a bunch of other fields in the handshake packet to sniff the OS. And lol no, I'd highly doubt that they're uniformly detectable. I'm presuming that the sniffing program (Cisco NAC) has some knowledge of that kinda stuff, but I'm also presuming that this is a pretty limited way of doing things. So my hypothesis is, if one or two of these fields was vastly off... but like I said, I'm pretty unfamiliar with this stuff.
