comment Is there another place to host/machine name?
@MagnoC Please check your hostname configuration - I can see as muru points out (and I have requested you to check) that you have not defined a hostname for your .26 ip address that is in use. If you correct this you should find your DNS on the network gets corrected.

@MagnoC If the title does not match what is asked, please edit the title to match. It would also help if you frame your text with an actual question that needs answering :)

I do hope this is a learning exercise, as creating a filesystem is a complex thing, creating a database is too !

comment Should I upgrade to 16.04LTS from 15.10?
There is no forced upgrade. Just because support ends does not mean 15:10 will stop working.

comment Securely erase hard drive using the Disk Utility
The problem with using these commands is that it will only erase blocks seen by the OS. Any spare blocks (especially reserved cells on SSDs) will not be erased.

comment Cores vs Threads: How many threads should I run on this machine?
"more threads means less frequency ", this statement is very wrong. Even with hyperthreading, a single lone process can make complete use of the processor. Hyperthreading can make use of instruction pipelines and registers that would otherwise be idle to do some executions from different processes/threads in parallel, increasing maximum throughput of a processor in certain cases. Performance gains are very application/configuration. After the P4 there are no documented performance penalties with HT enabled (the P4 gen cores had some issues in certain cases)

comment Is there still no way to delete and rename files in Libre Office?
@empedokles is there a reason you could not use the file manager ? You could even leave it open throughout the day unlike the open dialog.

comment Remove array of entries from another array
For simple datasets, tuples are not noticeably faster at iterating in my experience, but definitely more memory efficient and faster creation time due to being immutable.
