comment Is there a way to open the “Connect to Server” without opening Nautilus first?
I think this only works in Ubuntu 11.04.

The link I shared is for Ubuntu server and works from the command-line, I've edited the answer to make that clearer.

This is not the recommended way to upgrade Ubuntu. Use update-manager, as it can perform some additional tasks related to cleaning old unsupported packages, and migrating to new ones safely. Also, there is practically no difference between using Synaptic and apt-get.

That will work in a terminal but I don't think it will work from the dash.

comment How do I download torrents?
Thanks for the prompt reply. I'm afraid it's pretty clear from that link that relicensing it under cc-wiki is not allowed. cc-wiki allows people to distribute derivatives, whereas that copyright notice doesn't. (Everything you post here is automatically licensed under cc-wiki, see the link at the bottom of this page.)

I hate to have to ask this: do you have permission from the copyright holders to publish this here?
