Charles' mystery IP is indeed a mystery.
A whois shows this...

No, I think the coloration of the box is pretty neat, but what I find
unprofessional is the fact that whatever you do, you'll get this error
message. It should wait for the user to finish typing (when the password
verification box loses focus) to check if passwords match, and not while
you're typing, or else, no matter fast you can type, you get this rather
unfriendly warning.

Yes, exactly.

No, I never use DHCP, only static private IPs and the DNS of my ISP.
The first DNS listed is: (I have no idea where it comes from).

Yes, but what I don't understand is why Linux shuts down the computer
properly but not PC-BSD (both are open-source software).
