comment Set DNS server on OS X even when without internet connection
Reading man 5 resolver, I found a solution. Add a line like search_order 1000 to your resolver.d file, where the number is lower that any of the other resolvers listed by scutil --dns (all of mine were 300000 or greater). This seems to cause the entry to superscede all others.

comment Set DNS server on OS X even when without internet connection
When I'm offline, the /etc/resolver rule catches resolution requests. However, I am finding that each time I connect to Wi-Fi or ethernet, I must run the corresponding -setdnsservers command (on OSX 10.8). This seems to be because the DNS servers provided by a network's DHCP server overwrite the manual settings. I wonder if there is a way to set the precedence of the resolver rule so that it is higher than any of the other resolvers.

comment noise damping for rackmount servers on-the-cheap
i believe all the fans (including the power supply fan) are removable. the voltage for the fans are regulated by the BMC based on temperature sensor data (each fan has an RPM sensor, the BMC applies voltage to reach a desired speed). At least this is what I've gleaned from what research I've done so far.
