In which case you should move this question to askubuntu.com :)

comment ssh sudo command to local machine
What user are you logging in as on slave, and what OS is it using? Also, paste the contents of your .ssh/config file - make sure to change the IPs though :)

comment Losing ssh keys when it's the only authentication
Exactly; if it's a self-hosted VM then that's what you'll have to do, some VPS providers and cloud VM hosting services may have their own automated way to do this though. With Amazon EC2, for example, I'm pretty sure you can upload a new public key from the web interface.

comment Using video ports 'backwards'
Like @techie007 says in his answer, this is an output connector, so the cable goes straight into a graphics card. There's no way you'd be able to get software to change the way the hardware works.

comment Why is 'ping' unable to resolve a name when 'nslookup' works fine?
are you running these tests on wolfram or on another machine?

comment Why is 'ping' unable to resolve a name when 'nslookup' works fine?
What I think's happening is that ping isn't looking up the FQDN of the host, unlike nslookup which uses the search domain parameter of a DHCP offer (or whatever you specify for a static IP configuration). Confirm this by doing what @SLaks has said and pinging the FQDN of the host :)

comment Why do I have untrusted certificates for Google, Yahoo, Mozilla and others?
I understood the concept of CAs; I was just surprised to see entries for specific servers :) Chrome & Chromium warn you that the certificate is invalid/self signed and let you decide what to do :)

Thanks! I've heard of revocation lists and expiry before but I guess I didn't put 2+2 together :)

comment Use VPN for only select connections
Specify in the question (possibly make it bold) that you're using Windows. This is the kind of problem which is very OS-specific

comment Backups over SSH via Cron - which user?
I stand corrected! :) Still probably a bad idea from a security perspective though as its using the root user privileges
