Tip for Googlers: No need to type matrix(1,0,0,1,0,0): just clear the stuff in the value box out and press set to achieve the same thing.

revised "Thanks, but no thanks" OR "No, thanks". Isn't 'thanks' in the former redundant?

Yeah, I see your point. I guess what I meant was that "Thanks, but no" sounds a bit firm to me. But I really don't get that feeling of sarcasm from "Thanks, but no thanks", but yeah you're totally right, it depends entirely on tone of voice. I've just never heard it said that way before. (Thanks, that makes me feel a bit better. I really hate the down-vote system on SE, it really puts me off from replying to other questions)

Really? I think "Thanks, but no" sounds sarcastic. And I'm also a native speaker of English (Australian).

comment iptables - UDP Packets from unknown IP addresses
Hi again! Thanks for your time with this, by the way! Actually, I'm aware about system calls. I've even used that one before (but only at a veery basic level)! What I don't understand is how it works on the network. My understanding was that binding to the port just let the OS know that your process is using that port for something. How does this let the router know to send incoming UDP packets on that port just to my rpi. I think it has to do with NAT. For TCP I understand, because the router knows about connections and do things it can't with UDP. Sorry if my understanding is way off!

comment iptables - UDP Packets from unknown IP addresses
Thanks for the help! Couple more questions: How does a program bind a port like that? Is simply requesting through it enough to bind it for some length of time? Secondly, I noticed that the time on my pi is actually correct despite these responses being blocked: do you think that these packets may have got through between startup and iptables coming into effect, or is something else going on?

comment iptables - UDP Packets from unknown IP addresses
Oh I see! There is a NTPD process running on the raspberry pi. I guess this is to get the time since there is no on-board battery. So I assume my pi requesting these, (OUTPUT is unblocked) but the response is being trashed since there is no INPUT rule. I have a small question though (just to make sure I understand). Are all computers on my network receiving these packets too (since UDP has no concept of a connection, the router just sends it to everyone)?
