comment SD Card Not Recognized as Bootable
This depends on two things: either your BIOS can't boot off an SD card, in this case you'll have to replace your motherboard. Or your SD card is not set to be bootable. To help determine which of the two cases are present in your situation please post the full output of sudo fdisk -l /dev/<your SD card>.

comment A right path to CPP SDK for using it in IntelliJ Idea's cpp-project
What in the nine hells do you mean by 'C++ SDK'? On a linux system there's g++. It compiles C++ and has all the default (linux development headers). Also g++ should be by default on your $PATH.

comment How can I burn a bootable dmg image?
+1 for explaining how to convert *.dmg into *.img (and then *.iso). -1 for telling how to make a boot pendrive from a *.dmg instead of telling how to burn it to a disc.

comment How do I mount an EncFS volume at /media/username/mountpoint?
Just an FYI, but generally stuff in /media/username only needs to be set to 700 permission wise.

comment Why are the default permissions for /media/username root:root?
@d3vid : As for the security concern: it's because folders that you have write access and execute access to can be used by a hacker / cracker / whatever you want to call him / her to upload binaries that they can then use to gain root access to your box. (This is called privilege escalation.) Although you shouldn't make your system deliberately more insecure there are default places that allow the same thing (and are more obscure and as such make less likely the hackers activity to be found). So the "security concern" in this case could be ignored depending on your setup.

comment Why are the default permissions for /media/username root:root?
@d3vid : Depends, in the second case if you hadn't changed the default permission your normal user wouldn't be able to write to /media/user (as it's 750) which is a tad bit better than the first case. As for the mounting: historically the /mnt and its subfolders are considered to be the default mount point for anything, the /media was only added so that people who just want to use a linux box without actually understanding how things work won't get confused by all the strange folders and whatnot on /.

@wilf Yup, that runs fdisk as root.

comment How do I remove YouTube sidebar integration?
@playcat : That's because it has been installed as root (either as a dependency to something or when you installed your base system), and as such it resides somewhere in /user/share/ (I'm not sure of the exact location so I might be mistaken), and not by your normal user (which would install it somewhere in your home). As such to get rid of it you have to to uninstall it as root (either the package that contains it or the addon from the browser, both seem to work ... though the second one messes up the package mangers little mind a bit).

comment How do I install WhatPulse?
Yeah, and the right thing to do would be to write feature requests for both the ubuntu and whatpulse devs for an ubuntu package. And cross installing packages between ubuntu and Debian isn't really a good idea. (Because it might break something.)

@Tyler: O.o Something is either enabled (working) or disabled (not working). There's no in-between...

comment Error running a script: ?#!/bin/csh: No such file or directory
Added code tags... they should be added whenever you paste large blocks of code, so it's easier for others to read through it.
