I just checked and you don't say which distribution you have. Therefore, on

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
It may not matter, depending on your distribution.

break your network capabilities and degree of protection against intrusion.
Also, the entire idea of computers is software (written, evanescent things)
controlling hardware (solid, corporeal things).
