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

I don't, but it would make your answer less awful.

Good link, but you might want to talk about it a little... and add using loopback mounting for file based filesystems instead of formatting in case some external hard drive firmware has a hard depend on NTFS (I've seen this first hand).

comment Ambiance theme git repository
You'ld get an upvote from me if you added a small script to get source, clobber files in the current git tracked folder, commit, and push - assuming saved credentials. This way the OP could take your data and throw it in a cron job to make a github repo as a jumping off point.

comment vnc - black and white hatching
To expand on @VolkerSiegel 's comment - that's what happens if you don't have a a default X session and you connect to X without a window manager to prettify everything... read as a giant X for a cursor; ugly windows; and a background of alternating black and white, black and gray, or white and gray dots.

comment Why does Linux has less possibility of getting affected by viruses?
I'm not a fan of this type of question, but the best answer I have seen is: "Since it's open source and community managed - a good virus definition has about the same complexity as fixing the bug in the first place... so the bug just gets fixed instead of writing endless signatures for broken software"

comment cron, mailto on python script error
see: how do i implement a try catch block - you said it works when the script doesn't crash... so your real problem is not understanding try catch blocks.

comment Getting error while installing python-kivy packages in Ubuntu
kivy is a beast to get working on ubuntu mostly. It's a beast of a solution, and I like it a lot... It's too troublesome to use OOTB though.
