comment Mac OS X Darwin: how to reset admin password?
I advise buying an old installation DVD and doing a complete OS reinstall at your earliest convenience. I would not trust the existing installation to not be compromised in some fashion.

comment Debian machine makes repeated requests to DNS for <gateway_ip>.in-addr.arpa
That log entry says that .2 is trying to reverse resolve .1, not itself. Just ping'ing the router would be enough to generate such requests. netstat -r or traceroute would do the same.

For some reason I didn't see the Ctrl button overlaying the text, so you could use that, I guess.

comment How do I trigger autocomplete without a tab key?
You don't, at least not to bash. Normally I would tell you to type Control-q A or Control-v A to get an A in this case but you don't seem to have a control key either. Pick Z or one of the easy symbols if A looks like something you can't live without.
