comment Upstart job cannot create directory in /var/run
DANGER here: sudo forks when run. Now, if you check the "expect" stanza, you will see that daemons sometimes fork twice and the expect daemon will wait for 2 forks. Now, if you are using a daemon that forks twice, and you use sudo with it, there are now 3 forks (1 by sudo, 2 by the daemon) and upstart will not be able to keep track of the processes and will hang.

comment How to change time-zone settings from the command line
I think it would be better to link one of the city files rather than GMT or EST, as then they will keep track of daylight savings time, whereas linking (e.g.) GMT will not change the system time to reflect when daylight savings is in effect in your city. e.g.: ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London /etc/localtime

comment Removing Guest Session at login in Ubuntu 14.04
Agree that multiple config files are the way to go, as it is more extensible and causes less conflicts... also easier to automate with devops scripts!

comment How to connect to a L2TP VPN given some info from a sysadmin
Unfortunately, I've left the place of work where I needed this, so I have no way of testing it. If a few people can confirm that any of the techniques work, I'll accept the best answer.
