7/21    Can I just use ifconfig to expand my netmask on a FreeBSD box?
        Are there any gotchas here? Linux forces me to restart my network
        to expand my netmask.
        \_ yes... and no, you don't have to restart your network on linux either
           \_ Rebooting is the Ubootntoo way!
              \_ Oooboot'n'tootin!
                 \_ Before  I start any ubuntu installation, I eat alot of
                    beans.  And super hot salsa.
           \_ Well, maybe not technically, but on linux, using ifconfig wiped
              out my route table, including default route. It did not on
              FreeBSD, so I could just change the netmask on the fly.
              \_ On linux, you have to think in russian.

7/21    "How to Upgrade an Old Phone into a Porsche" (
        "Ortiz spends five to six hours each day searching Craigslist for the
        right kind of swaps. Over the last two years and 14 trades ......"
        If he just got a job and work five to six hours each day for two
        years, he would probably have earned more than enough money to buy the
        10-yr-old Porsche anyway.  ( says it's worth ~$9-12k
        depending on options and conditions.)
        "Harvard Business School, watch out for this guy."
        Indeed.  Watch our for this guy and don't admit him, since he thought
        he made some quick bucks while he actually worked below minimum wage.
        \_ people like that should be drafted and sent to afghanistan
           \_ That's how we got Milo Minderbinder.
