comment How to scan local network for SSH-able computers?
In defense of Andrew: yes, it's desirable to set unchanging IPs in the DHCP lease, and to have local names. However, consider the real-world case where I just carried a headless Ubuntu PC into the office and hooked it up. For the first connection, I wanted to find the IP without carrying a keyboard and monitor over to it. To symcbean's question, it was easy to know the correct PC based on the MAC address decoding (automatically done by nmap/Zenmap) to the motherboard manufacturer, and the operating system used. Sometimes you don't know the IP and need to find it.

comment How do I schedule a task to run every hour indefinitely on Server 2003
Any reason you chose 23:59 instead of 24:00 for the Duration? You state that yours works, so I'm blindly going to copy it, but I wonder if there's any downside to just using 24 hours.

-1 because IMHO the question is not about the End Date, but rather the Until value. This answer does not (AFAICT) explain what value to use for Time or Duration in order to ensure that the task repeats throughout the day.

This answer is no longer valid for current OS X versions. See the answer here superuser.com/a/50104/57219 which works at least up to 10.8.3

comment Is it normal for inbound traffic to far exceed outbound traffic?
Thanks for the thoughts. 1) No, as described above, the response from the apps is outbound. (I'm looking at network adapter traffic.) 2) There are a few scattered POST, but not significant. 3) The only routes accepting POST regularly are for my own admin, and those are used infrequently for only kilobytes. 4) Good point on blocking, thanks.
