comment How to easily start a webserver in any folder?
Yes, you need one of the newer version. The version in the 13.10 repos if you do sudo apt-get install php5 is 5.5.3, so you should be OK.

smbfs has been replaced with cifs-utils, other than that the instructions work for me too.

That's right, I just did it this way - much more user-friendly.

comment Where is virtualenvwrapper.sh?
What about zsh users? Great, another package that behaves differently on each OS. I think a sudo apt-get purge virtualenvwrapper and sudo pip install virtualenvwrapper is in order.

comment How do I get help on apt-get's install subcommand?
Thanks, you are right. I am still perplexed as to why isn't this option listed under apt-get -h then or in the manpage synopsis. This way I really have to go reading through the whole manpage to find any options relevant to the install subcommand (luckily I roughly knew what this one was called, but new users might not).

comment How can I limit the size of my ~/.cache folder
Thanks for you help, Oli. Yes, I see what you mean - it's a trade-off between having a more responsive OS and saving disk space. I'll think about the methods you suggested and see which one suits me best - probably the last one, as it's a laptop and I want to minimise re-computing stuff to save battery.

comment How can I limit the size of my ~/.cache folder
If I understood you correctly - I mostly put my machine to sleep whenever I can and only do a clean shutdown when I know I won't use it for some time (or I did some upgrades).
