comment Backing up MySQL Database (Up to a month or while theres space)
You should be aware, that the binary files in /var/lib/mysql/ may not be in a usable state (i.e. out of sync with each other) while mysql is running. To backup these files you will have to stop the database first, thereby syncing them. Also, using these files with another version of mysql might not be possible!

comment Use real browser instead of w3m on SSH connections
Why can you not connect to the remote server via http? Do you specifically need the request to originate from localhost for testing purposes? @Javier X forwarding, especially for firefox, is heavy on bandwidth and I would not recommended it for non-local connections.

comment How can I customize a system locale?
I see. Taking en_US for LC_NUMERIC and de_DE for LC_MONETARY and LC_MEASUREMENT gives you other side effects? See also the new link for generating a personal locale.

comment Automatically mount sshfs on startup?
I believe in newer releases, you should use the network manager scripts for this task, see e.g. this guide. Christopher's link however also covers questions for password and allow_others etc.

comment How do I permanently add an identity for SSH?
To copy the key to ther server you can just use ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub serveruser@servername or ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub respectively. Actually, if you use the default name for the key file you do not even have to specify it.
