comment GPG Key/File Naming Confusion
Couldn't agree more with: Especially in the free software world, one should put special attention on making a distinction between standards, implementations (and even more, non-free implementations). Also great that you filed a bug report.

comment GPG Key/File Naming Confusion
No, OpenPGP is the standard defines the keys, protocols and files, not PGP. GPG and PGP are both programs used to implement them, of which Ubuntu doesn't even use PGP, it uses GPG instead.

comment GPG Key/File Naming Confusion
@CharlesGreen I'm asking why Ubuntu uses the term PGP instead of GPG not "what is the difference between PGP and GPG". I even specifically referenced that post in my argument that the two are clearly different, hence, why do we still use the term PGP and not "GPG Keys" or "OpenPGP Keys". As it currently is, it's like referring to an "Oracle Java program" rather than a Java program which would be referring to them as OpenPGP keys, since OpenPGP is the standard/interface, not the application.

comment How to install OneDrive on ubuntu 13.10 x64
Somehow Seafile always gets forgotten. Its "dropbox on steroids" and allows you to host your own (which I do). Its major advantage is that it allows you to encrypt everything. There is also a cloud offering at seacloud.cc if setting up your own server is too complicated. Clients for Mac, Windows, and Linux

comment Setting PIdgin up for Lync2013
@Paulreg Names only appear for me when I have manually added them to lync. It's a major pain and would love a solution to that.

comment How to show a running clock in terminal before the command prompt
If you use byobu, it shows a clock in the bottom right of the terminal. If you press f9, you can even add the time in UTC which is extremely useful as a sysadmin that manages servers around the world and keeps log timestamps in UTC. It also means that you can use whatever shell you like. Bash/fish/zsh etc.
