This is not about me, and nothing about computers or programming either, but check out the site of a man from a land down under who, going against the academic establishment, has come to what I believe are amazing insights into the history of the mega surface features of Our Planet Earth, adding significant and genuinely new facets to the old theory of Earth Expansion which, while discredited by consensus, will prevail when the current paradigm of Plate Tectonics collapses under its many conundrums: http://www.earthexpansion.blogspot.com/ - Don Findlay's Expanding Earth Blog

comment How can I tell whether a network interface is physical (device) or virtual (alias)?
Thanks. Note wlan0 would have been present in the device list under /sys/class/net hat it been enabled when I copied the list. :) I have now added it above. I disagree with you on the number of devices, I think there are only two, LAN and WLAN. But that's a minor point … good answer, accepted, thank you!

Thanks. I added similar output to my question. It is not as clear as the output you're showing here, with PCI bus or whatnot showing up there; although I don't really understand the output, I agree it looks like hardware identifiers. In the case of my output posted above, it's the presence of ag71xx that makes me think it's hardware, since it looks like a driver.

@BatchyX, thanks, first time I hear ifconfig is deprecated. Anyway, this tiny router box doesn't have the ip command, and there's no space left. It uses the busybox binary, which has ifconfig (among others) aliased to it, but not ip. Will keep in mind that ip should be used, though. Thanks.
