comment How to I add a command to be available from the auto run box for DVD videos?
OK, now THAT'S awesome. Every other thing I've seen is some hideous udev config, which is outside of where I want it (in the user account's scope, not system wide).

comment Can I try out XMir/Mir on a 13.10 startup disk?
It's instructions like those which are in that link that are (one of) the reasons I love Ubuntu.

comment Partition Alignment Confusion
It most certainly is 1536, as the 840's (non-pro) use 3 bits per cell NAND (reduce costs at the cost of lifespan, don't worry it's still >=11 years) @jayw What would also be useful is how to shunt your partition about if you only find out this information after the event! ¬.¬ I assume all you really have to do is set the partition start in gparted to 3MiB and you're done (as long as its the first partition that is). What about the 2nd/nth partitions though? If the partition length isn't a multiple of 3MiB for instance.

comment Partition Alignment Confusion
It is 1536KB because the Samsung 840 (mainstream line) uses 3 bits per cell NAND (called TLC). It's entirely correct. @rod-smith

I'm also getting this problem with a huawei e160. Eliminated power problems so far. Going to try a different hub next. Did you ever resolve this.
