comment How to connect mtp android device to ubuntu 13.10
@LiveWireBT, You won't get an explanation because this answer is complete nonsense. I have USB3 and it still won't mount MTP devices.

This isn't the problem. I also get "device: 2 was an MTP device" but I'm still not able to mount my phone.

comment How to find a computer name in a LAN from the IP address?
This shows all active IPs, but it only shows domains for machines which explicitly have custom domain configured in my local Bind server. It doesn't show any local hostnames, which I think is what the OP is trying to accomplish.

comment How do I upgrade to Postgres 9.2?

What provides the 9.3 version of pg_dump? Dpkg says it's still being provided by postgresql-client-common, which is stuck at 9.1.

Note, piping into sudo is not recommended. On my system, that causes the sudo prompt to be hidden, making the entire command appear to hang indefinitely.

comment How do I increase the open files limit for a non-root user?
Also, note that after you edit /etc/security/limits.conf, you may have to logout and then back in before you can use the new max limit. I did this, and was baffled by ulimit -Hs still showing 1000 when I had just raised it to 1000000! Then I logged out and back in, and ulimit showed the new amount.
