comment How come the shell for my Mac can't find the postgresql command?
Oh interesting, your answer led me to what was wrong. Mac OSX lion seemed to rename postgres to postgres_real.

comment How do I compress a 200MB MOD video file?
Thanks! I'm greeted by this Handbrake interface (dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1531353/Misc/Docudocker/…). Which things can I toggle to get this 200MB video down to say <10MB? I've tried just the default encoding to MP4, but the output video is still 187MB. Web optimization also produces a 187MB.

comment How come I can't access Youtube videos on Chrome in Ubuntu?
Thanks! I pursued another solution from an answer below since I think getting rid of Pepper Flash entirely is a better solution.

comment How come I can't access Youtube videos on Chrome in Ubuntu?
Your answer worked too! As you noted, I just got rid of PepperFlash entirely as opposed to just disabling it.

comment How do I prevent my /etc/hosts file from refreshing upon restart?
That's impossible :) He doesn't know my admin password, and su permissions are required to edit /etc/hosts.

comment Why can I run 23,000 CUDA threads on the GeForce GTX 480 GPU?
Wow, thank you. Why does context-switching on a CPU take so long?

concurrently threaded/scheduled. Each ALU/instruction context runs its own thread I believe.

comment How do I change the Java version of my “installed project facet” in Eclipse?
Oh really? I actually developed Django apps before, and haven't coded much in Java... so I might actually do that. Thanks :) Would Java jive better with other Google tools such as the Closure library though?

Thanks, I appreciate the knowledge though. I did not know that you can paste with those keys in Linux.

comment How come hosts file redirection fails?
No, example.com still oddly leads to iana.org/domains/example on my Mac with 127.0.0.1 www.example.com as my /etc/hosts file.

comment How come hosts file redirection fails?
127.0.0.1 google.com isn't working either. I'm not sure what's going on ... I know that /etc/hosts is a soft link to /private/etc/hosts on a Mac, but I don't think that helps at all.

comment How come hosts file redirection fails?
Thank you. I just changed the /etc/hosts file on my Mac to 127.0.0.1 www.google.com. However, google.com still leads to the Google home page. Do I need to refresh anything? Should I restart my computer?
