comment How to disable suspend in 14.04?
It's still in the menu - only polkit can change that - but choosing it should have no effect now, because pm-action will fail to run.

comment Why do my udev rules run if I use udevadm trigger, but NOT at boot time?
The really interesting thing is this works fine on the exact same system, cloned to a slower (spinning, instead of SSD) disk.

Not sure what you mean "when the GUI loads up". This is something that I need to have run when a certain PCI device is enumerated. (Specifically, a pci4e card).

Adding sleep 30 before the date line in the sayhi script had no effect; so maybe that's not the problem.

comment Why do my udev rules run if I use udevadm trigger, but NOT at boot time?
My guess is that udev is running so quickly/early that the root filesystem isn't mounted readwrite yet. If so, is there a way to ask a rule not to run until filesystems are ready? (Obviously, the above example is a contrived one; I have a real case where I need to do something to the filesystem when a certain device is detected on boot.)

i KNOW they're supposed to be identical. I've attached proof that they're not.

comment How to find top-level dependencies in a list of deb packages?
The initial list is the result of my predecessor being dumb and installing a bunch of packages we need for a product, but then giving me a list of the diffs between a base ubuntu install and the install after he did those package installs. He no longer knows which were specifically selected.
