comment Where do I find the UUID of a network connection on Ubuntu Server? (no Network-Manager)
Apologies for the delay. I have added extra info from a desktop machine. It's possible that the UUID is created by Network-Manager which would be frustrating. I also saw UUIDs being used for network connections in OpenStack Quantum and thought it might be lower-level, but perhaps they're both implementing their own UUIDs for the connections.

comment Upgrade from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10 stuck at Restoring Previously Installed Packages
I got this as well. However, in my case it did complete some hour or two later, so I have no idea why this took so long.

comment Ubuntu Server 13.10 now goes to sleep when closing laptop lid
I think the OP is running Ubuntu Server, tho, since they refer to a link for "Ubuntu Server". If they don't have a GUI then they won't be able to get to this screen. @user203846 - Can you clarify this by editing the question title?

comment Why does upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10 using a CD/DVD still require download?
I'd also like to reference an extremely similar question from the same day. It says this can be done form the graphical installer. However there's no information about how to do it from the command line. askubuntu.com/questions/202945/…

Is there a way to do this on servers via the command line?

comment How can I have a Bluetooth Keyboard Auto-Connect at Startup?
I believe that hidd is now deprecated as of bluez 4.0 in favour of udev, according to /usr/share/docs/bluez/NEWS.Debian.gz but I can't find any documentation on how to do it without bluez-compat.

comment How to add “Open terminal here” to Nautilus' context menu?
It's actually a feature that plugs into nautilus, so ordinary Ubuntu works, as well as many others that use nautilus.

comment How to add “Open terminal here” to Nautilus' context menu?
I notice that in 13.04 raring ringtail it has disappeared from the "Files" menu and is now only available in the right-click menu. :-(

+1 for the commonsense (move-delete-move) answer.
