comment adduser says user exists when the user does not exist
the id username command revealed for me my user was a domain account rather than a local one, by having the output gid=16777222(domain users). Stopping samba/winbind let me run adduser to make it a local user too. After adding the user I could start samba/winbind again just fine and the domain creds linked up the the local user by its username.

comment VLC is lagging when playing HD videos over my home network
You will also find that SCP has an additional bottleneck for data transfer rate, the CPUs on either end. This is because SCP is 'secure' by using encryption. This requires decryption on the receiving end. If your home server is like mine and is a cheap low power device then that can also slow down communications. You will also note that most SCP implementations are single threaded and will only use 1 core. For speed testing your network try another protocol like, FTP, NFS, or SMB/CIFS and ensure it is not using encryption. We have an old server at work that only gets 25mbps because of this.

comment How to install a package with apt without the “Do you want to continue [Y/n]?” prompt?
I particularly like the part "A 'feature' of this method is that this will break if you are incorrectly assuming only one interactive prompt." as spamming yes to everything can be extra dangerous.
