Perhaps your private ip address changes or port forwarding is misconfigured.

They are not files. See tldp.org/LDP/Linux-Filesystem-Hierarchy/html/proc.html

Hard to know, perhaps your public IP changed.

comment Which DVD rip program has the simpest use-case?
IMO k3b is easiet. I think a better question is what problem are you having? Otherwise this is more an opinion then a question.

comment Using sw raid (level 1) created with 10.04 in new install of 14.04
If everything worked in 10.04 it should work in 14.04. keep in mind 14.04 has not been released yet. Also , this is what the live usb is for, system testing. I suggest you boot the live usb and take it for a test drive. I also suggest a fresh install rather then an upgrade. Your data in your home will be preserved, separate partition or not. Of course back up before you upgrade / install.

comment unable to edit /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward in Xubuntu
@George - see askubuntu.com/questions/311053/… . As to your other questions, best ask a question rather then ask in the comments. Good luck to you.

comment looking for “calendar files” for the ~/.when ``minimalistic personal calendar program'' program
That program "when" is so old I could not find it on a google search. It sounds as if it may have been a proprietary program, so you may wish to email sun directly. Otherwise, it is sort of off topic as your question is not related to Ubuntu, you may have better luck on unix.stackexchange.com/questions

comment migrate windows 7 installed in virtualbo to drive partition for mainboot
virtrual box uses different (virtual) hardware then a physical installation so , to make a long story short, there is no way to migrate a windows install. you can look at this - virtualbox.org/wiki/Migrate_Windows but it is for XP and I am not sure it even works.

You are better off encrypting your install.

comment How to set a password on recovery mode in GRUB
That does not really help as you can bypass the by booting a live CD and doing the same thing (or other cracks). You need to restrict physical access. Physical access == root access
