comment Is it possible to create Ubuntu Shirts ( Merchandise )
shop.canonical.com accepts PayPal, which is also available in Venezuela. It will take about a week to transfer but there is your option. AFAIK making Ubuntu Branded T-Shirts is a nono.

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
yup. It is also good to know that you can still boot in using the LiveCD and attempt to recover your data. I was able to pull my /.cache and /.config out after the bork (those being the two things I never think to make weekly backups of)

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
yea my issue was: 1) Removed Windows alltogether, 2) Booted to LiveCD, 3) Merged my newly free'd space with my Ubuntu partition, 4) Boot into Ubuntu from my SSD (not LiveCD).... 5 days and maybe 6-7 boots later it was borked. --- not an issue just mentioning it so others can see it MAY cause problems when diddling around with partition sizes.

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
I have had strange issues after removing windows and re-sizing my partitions.. using GParted from the liveCD everything appeared to work, but then things stopped wanting to mount, and finally I ended up with a borked system (no DE, no Internet, no GUI recovery mode, ect..) - however this all happened in the 5 days following the resize.

the "Yes, Ubuntu doesn't" is confusing.. can you think of a way to re-word this to be a bit more concise?

comment Severe bug in Chrome Linux? Can't authorize on blogs in order to post comments
Can you try clearing your cookies? I have had strange auth issues in chrome due to cookies. Failing that you can kill your ~/.cache/google-chrome (note: this will remove all chrome cache and cookies).

comment How can I make Ubuntu check for updates less often?
I find it very confusing that your arrows change color throughout the tutorial. What is the significance of the red over the blue? You should add a disclaimer outlining this information. :P

comment How to move Unity Launcher to a different monitor?
paste.ubuntu.com/844605 that is my monitors.xml file.. I have also attempted to run the listed command sudo xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --primary && nohup unity --replace & and the launcher still remains on my left (smaller) non primary monitor.

comment What is recommended for people who can't stand unity?
@user973810 what he meant by rant was the 'useless' information. i.e you're research into the unpopularity of unity. - generally these types of blurbs are viewed as non-constructive (don't confuse that with us thinking you are being negative... think what if another user stumbles unto this from Google.. we want them to only have the facts, and not opinions) - I hope you can find what you are looking for in the linked post. If not come swing by the Chat and we can have an open discussion on the subject of DE's

comment Why do I sometimes log in twice (instead of once)?
I do suffer from the same problem. I blame(ed) my windows partition. not off logic or sound reasoning... but because windows was buggy and p'd me off. I will try to find out more about what is causing the issue and post.

comment Removing the underlines from menu key words
Those are built into the application(s) themselves.. This is a design feature of the application developer and should be a question to them. Afaik making a change like this system-wide is not possible.

comment Does Ubuntu index thumbnails?
Y U ASK 16 QUESTIONS AND NO ACCEPT?! but seriously, you should go over your asked question list and review to see if any can be accepted yet. This is a community of Q and A. Rep aside, it is nice to know when a answer has actually solved the issue at hand.

comment Remove duplicate locations in datetime indicator
I don't think the downvote was necessary guys. The question was not bad, just a known bug. and to be fair to the OP the bug was reported after he posted his question. +1 to compensate.
