I'm an avid programmer, enjoy creating things, enjoy a good puzzle and especially enjoy foxing people with a Java puzzle now and again!

Outside of my coding life, I have a number of other interests, including outdoors activities such as hiking / geocaching / letterboxing. I'm also fond of music - I enjoy listening to it as well as playing the piano and violin.

comment instanceof vs equals on defined string that identifies the Class
I assumed that the behaviour of instanceof was what was required since the question specifically referred to efficiency and not functionality - in retrospect perhaps this assumption was incorrect! Re-reading I'm now not quite sure one way or the other if I'm honest.

@AndreaF I've edited my answer accordingly - I still can't see a good case for you not using instanceof here.

comment Dealing with video (DVDs, .avi .mkv) in Java
@Mondain It's great for lower level transcoding work, but if you just want to build a media player it requires a lot of work just to get relatively simple features working properly (such as seeking.)

You need to be way more specific, including showing code you have and code you've tried already, before we can have a hope of helping you!

comment ISC DHCP - different subnet for specific mac addresses
I'd like two separate subnets in this case - there's a few dozen hosts sitting on it in reality, I just narrowed it down for the scope of the question. I wasn't aware (somewhat naively!) that the router had to be located on the same subnet, though that seems a bit obvious now! thanks for the help.

comment ISC DHCP - different subnet for specific mac addresses
Hmm, good point - though I did also put them both on 192.168.1.0/24 (ranges 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.50 and 192.168.1.51-192.168.1.100) but again no dice. I could understand why one failed and it fell back to the other, but it seems to be oddly mixing the two.
