    Newegg Boycott Back On

    Let us rechristen "Newegg" as ROTTENegg until they retract this clearly Micro$atanic inspired policy!

    How I would like to enhance iptables

    Netfilter modules like recent and hashlimit provide you with a /proc interface to manage the sets of IP addresses you load into these buckets but in terms of versatility and management they are crude compared to what ipset ( offers.
    *As far as I'm concerned the whole root vs unprivileged is a non-issue (Sudo).

    Browsers still re-fetch pages when using back button

    I have not tried Chrome or Safari, either. But Firefox, Konqueror, and that one from Redmond do this.

    iirc opera didn't do such things in the past. not sure about newest versions. i guess you're talking about so-called "browser" "firefox" or there are more examples of such ugly code?

    Static network config not based on interface name or MAC address

    One of the methods suggested should be fairly simple to deploy. You just need to have a DHCP server on each LAN segment the machines(s) need to do other IP addresses on. A new script to set up the addresses will do DHCP on each interface to get an address from the DHCP server. Since it gets the addresses from the DHCP server it can reach, these addresses will correspond to whatever network the NIC port is connected to. Once the address is obtained, then it can be given back and not even used. It is just sufficient to identify the network that interface and port is connected to. Of course, each LAN's DHCP server will need a separate subnet for it's dynamic allocation pool to make this work right. Or, just make a larger pool and don't worry about giving the addresses back to DHCP.

    The network part of the address obtained from DHCP will identify which network. A table can then map subnets to subnets so you know addition subnets the LAN might have. Then a list of addresses (including from server configs like Apache) can be obtained. For each address, see which interface(s) have the subnet that address is in, and bind that address to that interface.

    Then you can change NICs, change where cables are plugged in, and the kernel can have different probe orders with different interface names, and this will still bind the correct IP addresses to the correct interface.

    No, I want IP. I just want the system to configure the correct addresses with the correct interface more often than it currently does.

    Could rapid releases be hurting FOSS?

    That might be one of the reasons why enterprise Linux versions like RHEL do not do a major version upgrade in their OS version. Unless the OS major version changes, the major versions for all the packages remain same in their repositories. Those are just the updates and not the upgrades. I have seen this behavior with RHEL and CentOS. I know both are basically same.
