comment How to get the new kernel when upgrading from 14.04.2 to 14.04.3
Thanks. Can you explain the other differences between your recommendation and the Wiki's recommendation? Looks like it has a completely different set of packages. See diff here: diff-online.com/view/55c90c9f371d0

Why not include --install-recommends? And do I still want :i386 if I'm on 64-bit?

comment Definitive Guide to Wifi Dropping Consistently
I'm a web developer. I can technically understand what I read, but I have no idea how to answer this question myself -- if I did, I would've answered it already. In my last comment, I did offer a great starting point (I think).

Of course we won't be able to handle every situation ever. But we can tackle the most common. All of these issues do have common points, though: You typically start debugging in the same place -- likely a log of some sort. So, what log should we look at? Where is it located in the system? What are some common messages to look out for? Etc.

comment Constantly asked for WiFi password and CA certificate
I found that going to the "General" tab and unticking "All users may connect to this network", then re-adding the password in the "Wi-Fi Security" tab is the only thing I needed to do.

comment Software Sources: Select Best HTTPS Server
Knowing of the GPG signatures makes me a little more comfortable accepting updates now :)

Also, the top answer makes a good point that the MITM could simply provide me an older package with a valid GPG signature -- one they know has an exploit.

comment Software Sources: Select Best HTTPS Server
Good to know. But how does my client obtain these GPG signatures? Can't a Man In The Middle just serve me a GPG signature that matches the package they're sending me?
