comment How do I access Ubuntu server running in VirtualBox from outside
but how do things like static IP addresses work in bridged mode? Is everything on the same connection then? Would a web server on the VM be at localhost instead of some IP address? Are the ports forwarded 1:1? So if Tomcat is on the VM at localhost:8080 does the host machine just type localhost:8080 into its browser to see the VM?

comment How to properly set up a 'network drive' in Ubuntu 14.04
I have a DLINK NAS on my network drive. Using windows it automatically shows up but I'd like to browse the contents using the terminal on my ubuntu laptop. To do that I followed the guide for "How do I mount a CIFS share?" Here's the entry I added to my own /etc/fstab file for anyone curious: //192.168.1.249/Volume_1 /home/username/mounts/vol1 cifs guest,uid=1000,iocharset=utf8 0 0 Remember that it's best when you initially setup your NAS to set it a static IP address so that it can be regularly located on your local network.

comment Where does Ubuntu Software Center store its (language) settings?
this custom lubuntu build for my acer c720 had english software names in the software center but spanish descriptions. here's what i did to fix: 1) reset the translations per your first instructions 2) re-set system wide language settings to english 3) reinstall the software center. I believe the person who made the build deleted the extra languages to save space and this messed things up.

comment Backlight issues with Asus X551MAV-EB01-B
Because in their infinite wisdom you can't PM on SO. How is trusty running so far for you? I'm leaving for a large trip and can't afford to bring any of my own expensive hardware. Was looking at laptops to bring just to sharpen some skills over some long plane flights and wanted to get your opinion on the X551MAV-EB01-B.
