comment Cron process sends email, where are these sent emails?
No, it does not. It only sends them. It does not archive them or keep local copies.

comment Cron process sends email, where are these sent emails?
Are you asking where the mail gets sent to (as in to root@host.tld, or the users mail when the crontab was not for root), or if the cronjob keeps a mail folder with things like 'sent mail', 'inbox', 'spam' etc etc? In the last case the answer is Nope. It just sends the mail and does not keep any logs.

comment find is using a LOT of resources - how do I find out why?
Does it always slow down around the same time? Do you run updatedb (locate) via cron? Are there any disk errors?

comment Can't detect hard drive
1) What do you mean with "formatted with a linux partition"? Did they make a single partition on the disk (similar to dangerously dedicated) or is the disk installed in the normal way. E.g. a MBR or EUFI, and then partition(s) ? 2) You write that the BIOS detects it. That means the hardware is probably OK. But which hardware? A SATA port on the motherboard? On a plug-in card? It is on a HBA? 3) Can you please add the output from dmesg during the boot. (To check if or which disk controllers and disks are detected).

comment Why do I have 2 IP addresses for the same computer?
Doug: Same MAC means that the IPs point to the same NIC.

comment Why do I have 2 IP addresses for the same computer?
How did you set up an static IP? If you did so the first time you booted the Ubuntu installer then I have no idea how this happened. However if you first booted using DHCP (and thus got an IP in the router list) and later changed to a static IP then the router might be remembering both the new state and the old state.

revised Dell Poweredge R410, ubuntu(14.04) running dead slow
Changed dell poweredge 'CPU' to 'Dell powerEdge R410'. The CPU (which is a single chip) is an E5503.

comment Dell Poweredge R410, ubuntu(14.04) running dead slow
If the system is slow then it is waiting on something. Either on the CPU (unlikely, a E5503 is modern enough), disk, network, ... To answer what it is waiting on you need to post more information.

comment make ntfs hdd only visible in Ubuntu
Hiding it will be quite hard since you seem to want a 'real NTFS' filesystem on the drive. However depending on your goal you could just not assign a drive letter under windows.

comment 'tail' command not getting only the new lines
Does nano insert (append) new text to the existing file? Or does it empty (truncate) the file and then write the new (longer) version? Which is a new write which would trigger tail.

comment Is it wise to run computing virtual machines on KVM?
Using a VM is slower, but not much. Only you can decide if the low (1%-ish?) slow down is worth the extra ease of recovery when using a VM. That 1% is a guess and depends a lot on which hardware you use (e.g. CPUs with or without AMD-Vi or Intel VT-x/VT-d. Same for passthough IO devices or disk access via the host OS).
