comment What's the best way to SSH to machines on the local network?
@NathanLong - Nice tip! though one could argue having it in hosts file lets one access any service (if that is desired).

comment How can I publish my project code online so someone can help me with it?
So far this is the only solution that allows multiple files. THanks for sharing I can see this being handy someday.

comment New Ubuntu user, wireless connection - firefox won't work
@Dave do not despair, you are on the right track. You have gathered more than enough info to slap down a quick summary with some of the output from those commands you learned from that wireless troubleshooting page in a new post. I know at the beginning some people are put off when a hickup like this happens, but rest assured you will get help, and if your card was detected like you said it is very close to working. Point a link to this post, and for sure we will see more answers pour in. This usually is actually not common, maybe a simple re-install would of done the trick too.

Dave, don't give up friend, it is indeed probably a minor configuration issue. Have you checked the wireless troubleshooting guide? Don't hesitate to message me if you are stuck on a point.

comment New Ubuntu user, wireless connection - firefox won't work
Upvoted the question to (hopefully) push it back up the frontpage. I am not a 'wireless guru', but I am sure there will be help. This page should be even better to track down you wireless: help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessTroubleShootingGuide. When you fix the issue, if you have a chance to post what fixed the issue (as an answer if need be) so others with same problem can have a help page out there. Follow the steps on that above link. Should not be too difficult and you will learn a few wireless tips while at it. You can message me if you need help on anything in there.

Then, you have no Internet connection my friend, your NIC card, was it detected at startup? See this page for some general help on network configuration: help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/network-configuration.html

comment Sharing internet to Ubuntu 12.04 VMWare guest
That is indeed ... weird!Try: dpkg-reconfigure ifupdown but that has no guarantees. I found info at the very bottom of this ubuntu networking help page on bridge mode. I was wondering after reading that if your Mac needs to be configured for bridged mode. Maybe not, since another VM was conencted with live cd. Good-luck!
