comment Is full-disk encryption making my system unstable?
It's not dead! I managed to take a backup tonight. I would have done sooner, but I submitted my dissertation two weeks ago so was catching up with life outside the computer. I have edited my question to include links to the pre-test and post-test output of smartctl. I'm not sure what to make of it, though. Can you interpret it?

@XperianX how do I retrieve the kmsg log? I found an empty file called /proc/kmsg. I read on Super User that you can use dmesg to read the kernel log, but dmesg | grep kmsg returns nothing.

I tried this with some decimal data. It keeps all the formatting but rounds fractional numbers to two decimal places.

This works great if the cells all contain text or you don't mind losing the formatting. If you want to keep special formatting for numbers then you might prefer Sina's method.

comment Use xrdp to connect to desktop session
Vino doesn't start automatically on XFCE. I raised a bug and explained a fix here: bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=727473

comment Use xrdp to connect to desktop session
Was the guide really complete? I don't appear to have a running VNC server after following all the steps. I see "connecting to 127.0.0.1:5900 error - problem connecting" when I try to connect using freerdp.

Something changed the owner of .Xauthority to root while I was playing with xrdp, xfreerdp, and vino. Thanks for listing your steps!

comment No wireless with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 7260
I'm running 12.04 LTS because LTS seemed to have better "support" (longer anyway). Guess I need to use the latest and greatest to get good support for new hardware! Thanks for your help.

Is there a way to update the driver automatically using this method? Just noticed that there are more recent kernel versions available (up to 3.13.2).
