comment How do I create a remote location?
What operating system is the remote system running? Most Linux and Unix systems that allow remote access will run SSH servers, and you can connect via Connect to Server using SFTP, a secure version of FTP that is part of an SSH suite. See the Ubuntu guide to (SSH)[help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH].

comment what type of path in bash is more preferable
I've just started looking in to Ruby, and I found that the convention in Ruby is to start with [code]#!/usr/bin/env ruby[/code] for the sake of portability. Some noted that this makes it difficult to supply command-line arguments to the ruby interpreter, such as '-w', which would also be a problem for Perl.

comment What command can mount an SSH share and launch a file?
See also sshfs. However, I think the instructions there on creating the "fuse" group and adding the user to it are no longer current, as I believe the "fuse" group is now included by default in Ubuntu, and regular users are members by default.

comment Configuring bind9 views so I can have DNS services?
You usually would configure manual addressing on each client. I agree that if the goal is simply to have each machine resolve the other's name, using hosts files would be a much simpler and more practical approach. Using bind9 for this only makes sense if your goal is to learn to configure bind9; it's way more tool than you need for the job described.

comment ssh refusing all connections after upgrade to 11.10
user15346 executed sshd as a regular user, which is why it didn't have permissions to bind to a port.

comment Shutdown stuck at Ubuntu logo
One way is to check whether you have a grub-efi package installed -- most likely grub-efi-amd64. I should say I don't have real evidence that EFI is the problem; I'd seen it mentioned somewhere that there were sometimes startup/shutdown issues with EFI, but that they'd been cleared up with the Linux 3.0 kernel.

comment Where to put custom .bashrc stuff, in .bash_local?
I don't know what's gone wrong with the formatting, but I think the meaning of the code snippet should be obvious.
