comment 403 Forbidden Error after changing LAMP Apache root/ www directory
It is a permissions problem. You are not really following best practices here and I advise you either move your files to /var/www/html (where they belong frankly) or enable home directories. Tons of ways of doing both, see askubuntu.com/questions/19898/… or similar.

comment bug: Unable to handle kernal null pointer difference at 0000000000000068
We would need a lot more information to help you , hardware, what you do to trigger the crash, debugging info, etc. You are far better off filing a bug report as you are unlikely to write a kernel module even if we told you how to do so. Also, custom kernels are unsupported ;)

comment Is it possible to create a VPN on a single machine?
your ISP will throttle your data and a VPN will not help. You can ask you ISP if they have an alternate plan, probably higher priced, use a machine or VPS for torrents with another ISP provider, or work around peak traffic.

comment Make ubuntu client respect router-assigned static IP
The problem is with your router config and not Ubuntu. Your IP address is assigned by the router and not Ubuntu. You can also use network specific settings in Ubuntu, either with NetworkManager or wicd (static IP on home network, dhcp outside home), but, you stated you do not want to do this, so the only option is to configure your router.

comment cant cd to a directory error while moving files to another directory
And, IMO, it is always best to hard code your directories in scrips with the full path. SRC=/your/first/path ; DST=/your/dest, cp $SRC $DST

comment What service starts a user session before they login?
Really? I am running Fedora and have KDE installed, but kde processes are running in the background een though I am logged into XFCE with KDE services disabled in the XFCE options. You might look closer at the man pages for kde, especailly kdeinit5.

comment Grub doesn't appear Ubuntu 14.04
People keep advising to re-install or repair GRUB when this happens, but re-installing grub will not help (as you can clearly see)
