comment Command for determining my public IP?
Yep. I wouldn't be surprised if curl itself is slower than dig. Even if they were rewritten to be as similar as possible, curl would still be slower; it uses HTTP (including DNS) and dig only uses DNS.

comment Command for determining my public IP?
This is really fast. I did one warmup execution, then 10 executions each of this and curl icanhazip.com. Average for the curl version: 174ms. Average for the DNS-only version: 9ms. ~19x faster. See also: unix.stackexchange.com/a/81699/8383

comment Update notifier doesn't work [cache issue]
I still see the error message after doing what you suggest. I tried sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y wine1.7-i386 and I get the messages wine1.7-i386:i386 is already the newest version., then wine1.7-i386:i386 set to manually installed., then 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.. I'm on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS.

comment Hit Ctrl+c during do-release-upgrade. Did I break it?
This worked for me: sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock && sudo dpkg --configure -a (close to what I found in serverfault.com/a/323422/51150 )

better answer (at least, more directly useful for Ubuntu 13.10 without having to click any links): askubuntu.com/questions/356692/… (no offense, @AliNa)

sudo service network-manager restart in Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit desktop appears to properly restart network stuff and renew my DCHP lease. (From askubuntu.com/a/230751/2273 )
