so I actually ran into this on tmpfs and didn't realize that it doesn't apply to other filesystems. Thanks.

I didn't know that the dynamic limit was only available to tmpfs and new filesystems. My question then becomes "why does tmpfs limit the number of inodes it can hold?" I'm going to update the question with a a rationale from my comment to @Gregg Leventhal

They're created dynamically, though, right? It seems like refusing to write to the disk because you are writing too much metadata while you still have 30% free space is counter-productive, even if the disk is 60% inodes, if it's still only 70% full (i.e. there is only 10% data) refusing to write the remaining 20% because I have too much metadata is strange.

comment PassEnv does not find ENV variables
Just to be clear, this answer is both correct and disappointing, and I'm going with the suggestion to put things in a separate file. If the global environment files (profile.d/*.sh were actually global, then I'd be much more happy with things. Putting the same config in both /etc/init.d/envvars and /etc/profile.d/myenv.sh doesn't help any thing.

comment PassEnv does not find ENV variables
Done, but could you tell my why this is the wrong way to do things with Apache? There's no good way to get correctly set environment variables into Apache wsgi subprocesses? The docs seem to be wrong, because they suggest that not only does it work, it looks easy.

comment D-Link override DNS for all computers on network?
Thanks, I eventually got that. If you had said "set up a DNS server and tell your router to use that instead of what it's currently using" I would have been able to figure it out. Once I did understand what you were saying I got it worked out. If you care, I documented my setup on my blog: wp.me/p7Rar-52 .

I don't think your answer was offensive, I just thought you hadn't read my question: paraphrasing, here's what I thought I said: "I would like to configure DNS to override some names on my local network (Details of my situation)". To which you responded: "Use DNS."
