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

It sounds like you're asking someone to write your thesis for you. Someone already linked to available solutions... so, for my thesis I built something. You seem to be asking for someone to give you a drop-in thesis.

comment Intel Wireless N 7260 disconnects and asks for password
Allowing for more deviation from the standard isn't operating to standard. The fault isn't in the linux driver usually, it's in poor non-compliant versions that somehow work anyway.

Show me a pull request and a denial with a list of reasons. Then, I'll read that and quote it back to you.

Then get the patches accepted upstream.

I can make a ford pento run flawlessly. That doesn't make it a ferrari. I wouldn't choose that engine swap either.

comment Intel Wireless N 7260 disconnects and asks for password
The problem is hacky patches that aren't accepted upstream. So forks work, but mainline doesn't... at least until later when someone rewrites the patch to handle other conditions.

So, who told you atheros and realtek were the same thing? I had a vendor at defcon try to tell me the same. I wasn't an SE target. Atheros or bust for me.

I've had bad luck with inegrated intel wireless N cards. I just pop an ath9k card in there and it works like a champ.

comment Faststone Image Resizer equivalent for Ubuntu
Gimp can do that and can be driven from the cli - see the "Changing the Size (Dimensions) of an Image (Scale)" in this

scaling up or down. one is simple resize, the other is rasterizing to scale up like rasterbator.net

comment Game Engines in Ubuntu like Unreal Engine 4 or Unreal Development Kit
UE4 and the UDK can be compiled from source if you pay to subscribe to their github for a month. The UDK is a little sketchier, but some people report success.

What features did it have that you are looking for in alternative software? People that just know what linux software or webservice software does, might not be familiar with that one killer feature that made this a solution for you.

comment Xubuntu 14.10 (Thunar) won't auto-mount exfat partitions even with exfat-fuse and exfat-utils installed
That's really weird. I use XFCE on my daily driver, but all of my storage devices I use every day are ext4 or NTFS. I'll try to find one that uses fat to see if I can replicate.

comment Open cl in intel
After reading that and the linked thread, the beigenet days may be numbered. If a lot of code is actually being duplicated - it would seem that, I at least, don't particularly care if it stays split or not. The easiest approach may be to see when Gallium/Clover get to a stable API (I'm not up on that, so...), then beat the missing parts from beigenet (the not duplicated pieces) in to talking to that API instead. Either way. It's probably a lot like the avconv/ffmpeg battle that I also don't really feel a need to get in on.

That makes sense. I would be more on board with something like slapping it in jockey, update-alternatives, or whatever. Switch libraries with something that's supposed to switch libraries? Sure, that seems like a good idea for an untenable situation.

comment Internet speed greatly fluctuating, from 100kbps to 4mbps in under a second
I just moved what I saw from the comments to the answer, just like I said I would. If you're still seeing some of the randomness behavior, maybe your router has more memory now and the DNS thing is still choking, or something else. They're useful bullet points for anyone else that has the same problem. That's what the site is really about. Finding problems that effect large numbers of people and putting up decent bullet lists to help show them what to fix.

I don't think the needing to add it to your library search path is a problem with the library. If you're using OpenCL, the assumption is that you have some technical knowhow. Personally, I would like it if the OpenCL packages were all installable concurrently and you could just switch which library was included in your search path and re-run ldconfig to point to a different one. This could be useful if you had a test box with all 3 video chipset "brands" as a testing environment and you worked out a way to benchmark or just run-test your code on all possible targets.
