comment Concatenating AVI videos
Most of the answers below do not address the framerate issue in the question. Please don't just suggest a tool, but demonstrate how that tool may be used to correctly join multiple video files with differing framerates.

comment Cannot write to Folder mounted with SSHFS
It would help if you posted a short transcript showing how you tried to write to the sshfs filesystem, along with the resulting error.

comment How to connect and disconnect to a network manually in terminal?
If you are going to be messing with your system's network connection manager, I recommend that you do so while connected via wired ethernet, which is less likely to lose its connection, and easier to set up from the command line, should the need arise.

comment Resume interrupted copy
I've never heard of any such feature. Can you point to a manual page or other documentation somewhere that describes this?

comment Resume interrupted copy
Unfortunately, this is not a good solution. If any files were only partially copied, then skipping them will leave the half-copied version at the destination.

comment Can I map some key combination to the suspend function (it should also work for waking up the machine from the suspended state)?
It doesn't matter whether the keyboard is external or not. I've never heard of any feature that maps specific keys while a computer is suspended. The only feature I've seen is what I've described above: wake-up on any key press.

comment I uninstalled Compiz and now the Unity panels has disappeared
You have only described what you tried to fix your problem. You need to describe the actual problem in more detail, and anything you remember from before the problem began that might be related.

comment How can I make rm stop asking me for permission?
Just remember that if you break your system, you get to keep both pieces. You might want to switch to something like trash-cli to give yourself an undo button for deletion.

comment Picking a torrent application for a server
I've use TorrentFlux before. It's has a quite comprehensive feature set, but I recall it being harder to set up than transmission-daemon.

comment Picking a torrent application for a server
Another note with Transmission: you can use the Qt desktop client as a frontend to the server. Once you set it up, it looks just like you're running Transmission on your desktop, except that it's controlling the daemon on the server. Really slick.

comment Wanting to start development for Ubuntu (and most Linux distributions in general), which is suitable? Python or Vala?
Something no one else in this thread has suggested: you should learn Python because it is different from what you already know. It will expose you to a different way of thinking than what you learned when programming class assignments exclusively in C-like languages. Also, the syntax isn't that different. Try replacing { with : and then deleting all the } in some Java code, and it might start to look a lot more like Python.
