comment Should I connect my 2nd monitor to integrated or discrete graphics to maximize 3D performance on the 1st monitor?
Many mainboards will not allow you to run off the integrated graphics adapter while you are using an external card. Have you tried it out first?

comment Strange magnets in Dell Vostro 3460
Fun fact: many laptops rely on magnets to detect if the lid is closed (it used to be done with a mechanical switch, but these are often unsightly and tend to break). In this instance, the magnets in the speaker could also be detected by a magnetic sensor hidden inside the frame around the display.

comment What to do if kill -9 doesn't work?
@BadPirate, just let it be, zombie processes do not consume resources, apart from the tiny space it requires to be shown in the process table.

comment How to easily bounce arbitrary connections through known SSH server, to avoid port firewalling
This is almost exactly the answer I was going to post (could not because I need more rep to post an answer before 8 hours has passed) however I would add the "%p" percent_replace instead of the hardcoded port 22 to the netcat command. This allows one to specify an arbitrary port number to connect to. Oh and I used sed instead of cut.

No, by proxy I mean an SSH server to which you can connect to (a machine you own). I found out a way to do it, but I must wait for 8 hours before I can answer my own question...
