comment What is the best way to install python packages?
IMHO using sudo pip <anything> should be used very carefuly. Since tweetstream isn't in the Ubuntu Software Center, I recommend using a virtualenv. tweetstream's setup.py requires anyjson which is an Ubuntu Package. Not installing tweetstream in a virtualenv may cause other Ubuntu apps dependent on anyjson to fail. Troubleshoot hard.

comment How do I retrieve the public key from a SSH private key?
@Lekensteyn thanks, of course you're right!. Also 400 is recommended since no need to write to type private key file. Corrected command should be $ chmod 400 ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Please note that your private key file ~/.ssh/id_rsa must be restricted to your username. use $ sudo chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa and enter your root credentials to restrict it, then you can output the public key file. Otherwise you will get unrestricted private key file warning.

comment How do I re-run boot loader?
I get the same issue when I use apt-get autoremove, but as the Eliah Kagan says in his answer grub seems to work fine on reboot.

in addition to [Fixing GRUB error: “error: unknown filesystem” [duplicate]](askubuntu.com/q/142300/36961) another great link that covers these steps is How to Rescue a Non-booting GRUB 2 on Linux, the grub 2 manual is also very helpful

comment Recovering moved .mod files using grubrescue
I also had to specify root when loading the kernel as in the grub docs eg grub> linux (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-33-generic root=/dev/sda2

comment Recovering moved .mod files using grubrescue
Your post was very helpful for manually booting the kernel and initrd, but my system could not find dev, sys or proc, etc/fstab or sbin/init. That led me to another post, which suggested loading the kernel and setting the root as detailed in the manual boot directions in the grub documentation, eg: grub> linux (hd0,X)/boot/vmlinuz-a.b.c-d-generic root=/dev/sdaX, where X is the partition with /boot, a.b.c-d is the kernel version. Then my system booted fine! Thanks!
