My thoughts
Me on launchpad PPA
Evidently one of my mini-apps was useful enough to make it on to Webupd8
Do you use/like that app? Maybe you want to help fund a cryptogram game

comment What is sudo apt-get install libc6…?
I really prefer EDB to DDD - evan's debugger written on ptrace instead of a gdb gui.

comment make my machine invisible for ping
You're talking about two different things, ping and arp responses. Which one are you trying to block? I don't think you really want to do either (a totally static arp table or just dropping icmp echo requests/replies).

comment isn't the ubuntu logo related in any way to the The Pax Cultura emblem?
What about this clipartbest.com/cliparts/9ip/RkA/9ipRkApiE.jpeg ... 3 circles a borrowed logo does not make.

comment Cannot unlock session if user has no password
You might want to look at this post on meta about when it's probably appropriate to perform an edit instead of post another answer. There was a more in depth discussion in another meta question, but I can't seem to find it.

Try Xubuntu and see if it's just your video compositing for Unity hitting processor instead of the GPU.

comment Python3 cannot import gi
Anaconda works by overriding your global python environment and using only the share in your ~/Anaconda subfolders. gir is notoriously hard to build/install in a venv... so, to use your global python env, you have to disable that env mangling anaconda puts in your bashrc.

comment Dual monitor problem with windows scale
Alt+F10 to maximize the window, so you can get at it would be a work around, but as I said - I can't replicate the problem.

comment Is it possible to use Ifconfig to switch an interface to DHCP and if not, what is the best way?
It's a habit. So you're saying "unassign whatever address I currently have, then ask for an address" instead of just "ask for an address"

I can't reproduce this on XFCE. Maybe it's a problem with Unity?

comment Why does my Ubuntu 14.04 desktop light up my Webcam on startup and login?
I LIKE that it blinks when probed. Say you had some super-advanced thing that skipped the whole v4l2 layer and just tried to grab the webcam memory directly. I'ld like it to blink... I wouldn't run about whining about it.

When I had tearing, it was my video card getting hot and throttling performance. Might be something to look in to...
