comment Resolving local hostnames with D-Link DIR-657 router
Hmm, in that case, all I can suggest is trying a restart of your client to flush the DHCP and DNS information. But it's possible that D-Link routers don't use the entered hostname information for DNS resolution, in which case you can either go with a third party firmware, manually edit the hosts file, or set up an internal DNS server.

Check what DNS servers your other clients are using. If they're set to use external servers (i.e. not 192.168.0.1), then your router can't resolve hostnames for them.

comment Send emails in a non-interactive way in OS X
I'm curious, is there a reason a standard BCC wouldn't suffice? It's more or less designed for this sort of situation.

comment Don't they use HDMI for a normal PC? Is it pointless?
It is, per the HDMI wikipedia article, "HDMI is electrically compatible with the CEA-861 signals used by digital visual interface (DVI)". HDMI tacks on audio and some other data signals. And of course different connector standards, etc. "Superset" is perhaps a bit crude, but in a general sense I'd say it's accurate.
