RAID1 is not a backup! It will protect you against a sudden disk failure, but if you got a virus or otherwise need to recover data, RAID1 isn't going to save your bacon.

comment Where does Plex media server store its cache/settings?
On my machine, that cat grep command reveals that the export line is commented out, and I wonder why! Instead, I found the files in "/var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server".

I'm going to try 16.04.b2 and see if that has any effect.

comment Why does my webcam mess up like this?
@Tobias as I mentioned, I could not replicate it in Hangouts or Cheese, and not even in the Skype settings! And it doesn't even happen in every Skype video call - and when it does, sometimes it's in my thumbnail, sometimes in the received image. I can't figure this out.

crond doesn't exist in my 14.04.4 but sudo /etc/init.d/crond restart works.

comment TV tuner 'scan' outputs “tuning failed”
@Nodak good idea, but sadly even with sudo in front, the result is the same. (scan -v /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-19.2E) I still need to find a way to verify that the electrical connection between LNB and pc tuner is intact.

comment Colors wrong when printing on photo paper
Thank you @Takkat, I tried RGB as well but it looked bad too - not like this, just very very much too dark. (I tried a lot of combinations of printer settings, and have a whole stack of photos to prove it.)
