comment How to stop brightness changes (screen dimming) on low battery?
@Tim, I didn't believe that it did, but I interpreted your language to mean it was so: "it doesn't want data lost / HDD damaged, so it takes desperate measures."

Really? @Tim, how does power loss cause HDD damage?

comment Drag-and-drop file onto executable in Quick Launcher
Thanks, @doug. I added MimeType=text/*;application/*; to my .desktop file, and it now supports drag-and-drop for the files that I wanted.

comment Drag-and-drop file onto executable in Quick Launcher
@Serg, I'm not trying to drag a .desktop onto the launcher; I'm trying to drag a data/text file onto a .desktop (executable) file in the launcher.

comment What is the loopback device and how do I use it?
Why does 127.0.0.0/8 map to 127.0.0.1 through 127.255.255.254 instead of 127.0.0.0 through 127.255.255.255? (Sorry if this is perceived as a highjack.)

comment Prevent fs (SD card) from getting an item in Unity Launcher
actually, logout+login does not revert it. My setting is preserved across the logout+login process, even without the command in my .profile file.

comment Prevent fs (SD card) from getting an item in Unity Launcher
It looks like the right setting is gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Devices blacklist "['<uuid-label>']", but, oddly, this setting gets overwritten (reverting to its previous value) every time I bring the machine back from suspension.

Thanks, but devices-option doesn't appear to be one of the available keys under com.canonical.Unity.Devices on my system. (Ubuntu 14.04)
