comment ctrl+alt+f8 pulls blank screen. What is this for?
Is there a limit to virtual terminals? What will occur if there are more inactive user sessions than TTYs?

No evidence for the aforementioned.

comment How to read/mount a .gz.dd image file?
Is it gz.dd, or dd.gz? I'd expect the latter to be more common.

@Vreality It's a new law in the USA.

comment Deluge bit torrent. No incoming connections?
@Vreality Pardon that little mistake. Anyway, even if you are using P2P for downloading a Linux distro, certain ISPs seem to ignore that fact, and still mail you an irate letter.

comment dropbox installation failed (behind proxy)
@qbi From a glance, this has nothing to do with the software center.

@fossfreedom I unfortunately hit the character limit, but IMHO I bring in a fresh mind with a new set of eyes. I easily adjust to new situations, such as moderating Ask Ubuntu, and in a matter of days, can adjust my mentality to being impartial. I also often visit and post on [meta.SO] and I feel as if communicating with other moderators, especially those with more experience, will be my first step to learn, as well as the moderation guides carefully constructed over at MSO.

I see that you've contribited many good ideas as answers to meta. I think that you should also start asking more, to learn, and to get the community as a whole to think.

Of course, I have a good courseload, but with the way my classes are distributed, I can find a good half-hour to hour each day, except every other Friday, and a few odd weekends here and there. With that said, I might be performing multiple tasks at once (such as checking on the flag queue while a CompSci assignment compiles).

comment Should I install programs from a source tarball (`.tar.gz`), from the Ubuntu Software Centre, or from elsewhere?
@vasa1 This is regarding tarballs, since Apt and dpkg will check their databases, not the filesystem, in determining whether a package is installed. You can always use checkinstall to work around that.

comment How to I connect a raw serial terminal to a bluetooth connection?
Can you draw up a quick diagram? I can't understand whether it's serial over or bluetooth over serial, as well as who's passing on the data to where. Just do it in GIMP or something and upload it here

Are you doing Bluetooth->Serial, Serial->Bluetooth, or two-way?

Can you try to get specific instructions, as well as a legal disclaimer?

comment The program 'rails' is currently not installed
Using sudo every time a command gives PERMISSION DENIED isn't a good idea. Some commands do this for a reason if something shouldn;t be tampered with, others that access files (with mangled permissions) in a personal folder might mangle them even more.

comment Reccomended upgrade for Ram Ubuntu 12.04
It depends on the application and how it is made. You won't LOSE performance usually, but not every program will see gains.]

comment Reccomended upgrade for Ram Ubuntu 12.04
Yes, especially in programs that handle large amounts of data such as compter simulations, since they can process 64 bits at one time without weird extensions.

comment Reccomended upgrade for Ram Ubuntu 12.04
64-bit runs acceptably on machines with less then 4GB of RAM. I used to run it on ONE GB, on an old machine of mine. While you may still want more RAM, I just want to clear that up.
