I do stuff and things. I sometimes write programs. I'm fairly knowledgeable with c++, java, and c#, and to a lesser extent, php, python, various flavors of basic, c and cousins, and bash.

comment Does SSH use any compression?
You can enable this option in PuTTY if you're using windows: Connection -> SSH -> Protocol options -> Enable Compression.
comment How can I switch a 32-bit installation to a 64-bit one?
This answer rocks. I can confirm it still works with saucy. The one difference is that the procedure of adding an architecture has changed: use sudo dpkg --add-architecture amd64 instead. It will yell at you if you do it the other way. I needed to do this so I could chroot into a 64 bit installation from a (previously) 32 bit one and it worked exactly as expected with no hitches.
comment What is LVM and what is it used for?
This question is now the first google result for "ubuntu server lvm", FYI.
comment Why am I getting authentication errors for packages from an Ubuntu repository?
Is there any way you can get apt to be specific about what's wrong with the authentication process? maybe the verbose flag? I didn't think to try that and it's already fixed, and I don't know why it happened and don't know how to reproduce it.
