comment www.example.com and example.com records in microsoft dns
What do you get when you query DNS about the base domain name, currently? Is there, for example, a hidden CNAME record bedeviling your attempts to add this one?

comment Why does ethernet have a minimum frame size specified?
@AndrewWagner, As I already said in my response, mfinni's answer above, which is about collision detection, is correct. My point was that this "quirk" of the specification also allows hardware designers to take a few shortcuts of their own.

comment What is the best way to resize the “/” mount point that is not LVM?
You don't say what filesystem you're running, but modern best practices typically don't include splitting the OS across so many partitions. That was much more relevant back before journaling filesystems.

comment Varnish 503 error after exactly 60 seconds… how to change this timeout value?
bereq.first_byte_timeout exists, but I'm not sure it's writable. If it is, you could also modify that inside of vcl_pass as opposed to defining a second backend just to change first_byte_timeout.

The existing HTTP_REFERER Conds, as written, didn't work and wasted CPU cycles (due to ".*$" at the end).
