comment Is writing to /dev/null secure?
@ott-- sure, though it's sort of inconvenient if every user overwrites the file (stdout > /dev/null) instead of appending. That's why I made it a fifo... but of course you're right :)

revised Can Netflix tell whether I am behind a VPN?
The asker doesn't know whether Netflix can do this (the question says so). Removed "How" from title to reflect this.

comment Trying to keep high school students out of the Wi-Fi network
Point #1? Good idea. Point #2? Wtf. If I was a teacher there I'd make a program that automatically fires off emails to whitelist every DNS request my system does until this annoying shit is gotten rid of.

comment Is a longer WiFi password more secure?
MAC filtering is the single most annoying thing you can do if you have any friends who might ever visit you. My uncle's computer guy thought it was an amazing security feature (despite being easily cloneable) and now nobody ever has wifi at theirs. Big pain in the ass for everyone.
