comment Why does Ubuntu ask to check my hard drives every so often?
Should the two times you mention forcecheck be forcefsck instead? (ref: askubuntu.com/questions/14740/…)

comment Are there any hotkeys in dash for choosing among search term matches?
I misunderstood. You're changing the search type not navigating the results. Tab, Down, Down accomplishes the same as what fossfreedom describes, but with the keyboard instead of the mouse.

You don't need to hit tab. You can hit down three times instead, although that's slightly faster.

comment Isn't the calendar applet supposed to show today's date under the clock?
Actually, I didn't I just removed evolution, but apparently not all of the packages with evolution in their name. Regardless, I'm not using evolution.

No, I don't use Evolution. In fact, I completely removed evolution with steps from this answer. Maybe that's related?

Somehow Allan has the gconf key turned on (it was off on my fresh install). You can turn it off by entering this in a Terminal: gconftool --set /desktop/gnome/interface/menus_have_icons --type bool true

comment Choose password for new keyring
If your system is hanging, I'd guess that the keyring message is not necessarily related to your hang. Does it work on a live cd? Did it ever work before? Is it a fresh install? Are you using Unity? And include links to your system log files (post them on pastie.org).
